Akshay Kumar’s Gold has been creating a lot of buzz because of its content. The movie is one of the most anticipated releases of the year and fans cannot keep calm. The movie will see Akshay donning the hat of Tapan Das, an assistant manager of a pre-independence hockey team, whose aim is to get a gold medal for the country.
A BTS footage of the film was revealed by the makers and it showcases the fun and surreal side of our beloved ‘Akshay Action Kumar’. The video gives us an insight of all the hard work Akshay had to put in to bring the character of Tapan to life. Right from the dialect practice to attaining the physicality of the character, Akshay left no stone unturned to get the essence of the character right. We also see him discussing some things with the film’s director Reema Kagti.
Akshay talked about the film and commented, “I am playing Tapan Das, a Bengali, who is the Indian hockey team’s manager in the pre-Independence era. We added a mustache, a dhoti, with a jacket and a differently-styled hair-do for the character.”
The director also spills beans on the character, she says: “The person that inspired his character is very controversial. Scheming, unpopular, argumentative, but at the same time, knows the game really well.”
The film also stars Kunal Roy Kapoor, Vineet Singh, Amit Sadh and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. The film will release this Independence Day.
