Why Did Farhan Akhtar Refuse To Do A Role With Akshay Kumar In Gold?

As we know how well Akshay Kumar is going with his career, with his back to back hits. After his recent hits with “Airlift” and “Rustom,” which are real-life incident based stories, the actor once again has selected a movie from the same genre, titled Gold.” This is a sports period drama and is based on the 1948 London Olympics. It narrates the story of independent India, winning its first ever gold medal at the Olympics.

The movie is about the independent India’s hockey team, that was led by Kishan Lal, and how they won Gold at the London Olympics in 1948.

According to a report, Farhan Akhtar who is one of the producers of this film was asked to play an important role in this sports drama. The actor refused to do it as he wasn’t so interested in playing the second lead to Akshay Kumar.

A source close to Farhan said, “Reema Kagti is keen on roping Farhan for a pivotal role, but one that’s a parallel lead to Akshay. Farhan has apparently turned down the offer, considering his A-list image. The actor is also apprehensive about the project, since he’s played Milkha Singh in his biopic, and doesn’t want to play less important roles. One of the factors could also be that he’s producing the film.”

“Gold” is directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Farhan Akhtar- Ritesh Sidhwani under the banner of Excel Entertainment. The film is slated to release on August 15, 2018.
