Gold movie is probably one of the most highly anticipated films of 2018. It is all set for an Independence Day release and is already making the headlines with its trailer. The Gold movie is based on a true story and narrates the struggle of India for winning its first Gold medal in the Olympics after independence. Since it features Akshay Kumar, the movie is set to be a major release this year. Let’s get to know more about this coming sports drama.
Part 1. Gold Film Story and Background
Gold is focused on the golden era of Indian hockey. The protagonist of the film is Tapan Dan (played by Akshay Kumar), who used to work as an assistant manager for the sports department of British India. He saw the British Indian team winning Olympic gold twice, but always dreamt that independent India would be able to do the same one day. After when India got its independence from the British rule in 1947, he got a chance to build a team and win the first Olympic gold in hockey for the independent India.
While the movie certainly involves some fiction, it has been inspired by a true story. A lot of people are assuming that the movie has been inspired from the life of Balbir Singh, one of India’s memorable hockey legends
Part 2. Gold Movie Cast and Release Data
A while back, the first teaser of the film Gold was released. While it only teased the story of the movie, it certainly gave us the release date of the film. As expected, the movie will officially be released worldwide on 15th August, which is the independence day of India.
It has been directed by Reema Kagti, who is known for movies like Talaash and Honeymoon Travels. It has been produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar. Though, it is written by Reema Kagti and Rajesh Devraj. The distribution rights have been acquired by Zee Studios.

- Akshay Kumar
- Mouni Roy
- Kunal Kapoor
- Amit Sadh
- Vineet Kumar Singh

Part 3. Shooting, Development, and Music
The development of the movie was started in October 2016. To start with, the reputed hockey player Sandeep Singh was appointed to train the cast the nitty-gritty of the game. Initially, the major shooting of the movie took place in Yorkshire, England. Although the filmmakers tried to weave as many true aspects as possible (like India’s victory of its first gold), there has been a huge chunk of fiction in the story as well.
After shooting in England, the team returned to India in order to shoot the background story. They moved to Punjab back in 2017 to complete the rest of the shooting. The film was majorly shot in Amritsar and Patiala. It was in December 2017 when the entire shooting of the movie was completed. After that, the post production of the movie was started.
