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.
The dream that united our nation,
The dream that began in 1936,
The dream that took 12 years to become a reality.
Get ready to witness… #GoldTrailer releasing on the 25th of June pic.twitter.com/6xdoSVFmwO

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.
One generation dreamt it, the other achieved it.#GoldTrailer out on 25th June at 10 am.

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.
