The siblings of these stars are completely okay having a biggie next to them all the time. Here are a few other celebrity siblings we would dying to see on the big screen.

#Deepika Padukone’s sister Anisha

Deepika’s younger sister “Anisha” is a professional golfer, the two sisters share a great bond together like every other sisterly bond. She is as gorgeous as her sister Deepika Padukone is. Now, we would love to see her make her debut in Bollywood too.

#Alia Bhatt’s sister ShaheenAlia bhat

Bollywood star Alia Bhatt’s sister Shaheen has a pretty big fan following on Instagram. She has come out and voiced her views on battling, or rather, “living with” depression on and off, since she was 13. Now we want to see her on-screen too!

Akshay’s ‘Gold Trailer’ shows one man’s struggle to make India proud

Published

Gold poster Akshay Kumar

New Delhi, June 25: After releasing some intriguing posters, the makers of Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Gold’ have finally dropped the official trailer of the upcoming film on Monday.

Gold is a story of one man’s dream, dedication and struggle. And, he thus makes India proud.

The trailer opens with a voice-over announcing the words, “Gold, British India,” and an intense-looking Akshay giving ‘the stare’ to the British flag. What transpires over a couple of minutes in the trailer is a mix of patriotism and sports, just everything one could have expected from Khiladi Kumar.

Akshay, perhaps for the first time, will be seen as a Bengali in the film and the trailer gives a peek into that persona.

Naagin star Mouni Roy appears for merely five seconds in the trailer chastising Akshay in Bengali. She plays the actor’s wife in Gold. Akshay then proceeds to deliver a monologue laced with an almost overbearing love for the country.

The over two-minute long trailer also featured Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh and Sunny Kaushal, each of them a hockey player with a passion to play the game.

The film is about India’s first Olympic medal win as a free nation in 1948 at the 14th Olympic Games at London. It will release on Independence Day in 2018.

Post Gold, Akshay will be seen in Kesari which is again a period film based on the Battle of Saragarhi.
