Gold is an upcoming 2018 Indian sports drama film directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under the banner of Excel Entertainment. It is based on the true incidents of India winning the Olympic gold medal in hockey as a free nation in 1948.
Among others, the Arjuna Award winner and former Indian national team captain, Sandeep Singh, was signed to train the actors to improve their hockey skills. A lot of the shooting is being done in Yorkshire and the Midlands, England. Director Reema Kagti said “It’s a fictional take on what happened. Also, it is not just the golden victory in 1948 we will be looking at, but it will encompass 12 crucial years in India’s history.” The movie began principal photography on 1 July 2017. On 10 December 2017, Akshay Kumar announced that filming was complete. It is expected to hit the theatres on August 15 later this year.
