The teaser of Reema Kagti’s next movie, Gold just dropped and has gotten everyone talking about the unique role Akshay Kumar has been playing in this movie. Akshay Kumar plays the role of a disgruntled player who turns coach and fights to get the Indian team noticed and sent to the finals.
One would be justified to say the plot of this story sounds familiar would not be an unfair comparison. Shah Rukh Khan played a similar role Chak De India, a biopic on the Pakistani hockey coach, Kabir Khan. Scorned for selling out the Indian hockey team, the protagonist of Chak De proved his worth by winning the Gold medal for the Indian Women’s hockey team at the finals.
For Akshay in Gold, the stakes are higher. Freshly discharged from being under Imperial servitude, the Indian team had no individual wins to its name. Despite having won three medals earlier, this was the first match the team played after gaining Independence. Not only that, this win would send a befitting reply to the British Empire!
As evident from the teaser, Akshay understands the thematic weight of Gold very well and thus carefully balances the determination of a patriot with the personal eccentricities of his character. While SRK’s Kabir Khan was unrelenting and clinical, Akshay plays his part with a candid vulnerability. In this regard, even the obscure Bengali accent and the period cut moustache add to his nationalistic charm.
What makes Gold different from Chak De India is also the fact that unlike in Chak De, Akshay Kumar barely has any interaction with the members of his team. Akshay’s character in Gold has more shades of grey as compared to Shah Rukh Khan’s character in Chak De India! Given the success streaks of both Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar and looking at the massive amount of success Chak De got at the box office, it will be interesting to see how Gold does.
Either way, Gold promises to be an engaging potboiler with sweeping production design and some thrilling hockey. So vote and let us know whether you think Gold will beat Shah Rukh Khan’s Chak De India or not!

Salman Khan Rare And Unseen Pictures
Did you know that Salman Khan looked very, very different in the old days? Here are a few pictures that prove how very different one of our favourite Khans looked like back in the day!
Dabangg 3 To Be Directed By Prabhudeva
The Dabangg series have become a massive success since the first movie hit the screens. While the third part to this series was announced a while ago, the movie will not be directed by Arbaaz Khan.
Salman and Prabhudheva have earlier given us a super hit in 2009 in the form of Wanted. Other than this, the filmmaker, actor and producer has helmed multiple entertainers like Rowdy Rathore, R… Rajkumar, Action Jackson and Singh is Bling.
“I was in Mumbai last week to finalise all the details. Yes, I am directing Dabangg 3 for Salman and Arbaaz Khan. Who says no to them? We’ve been closely associated for the longest time. I share a warm friendship with Salman Khan and his brothers. When Salman and Arbaaz asked me to direct Dabangg 3 there was no question of saying no,” said Prabudheva confirming the news.
Everything in this part will remain the same. The music is going to be composed by Sajid Wajid and the only thing that is changed is the director. With so much already revealed about Dabangg 3, it is going to be quite exciting to see what happens when the superstar comes back on the screen as Chulbul Pandey!
