Kunal Kapoor is all set to join Akshay Kumar's sports drama Gold!

As we all knows Akshay Kumar is one of the busiest men if we talk about his Bollywood carrier. After completing the shooting for his upcoming movie Toilet: Ek Prem Katha which is a Shree Narayan Singh’s romantic drama film, he is busy with shooting for R Balki's Padman now. Akshay Kumar also has S Shankar's science literature drama 2.0,  also Biopic of Subhash Kapoor's on Gulshan Kumar Moghul, and last but not the list Naam Shabana the action thriller by Shivam Nair. There is an untitled project, co-produced by Karan Johar and Salman Khan is still, lined up for its release date. Along with all these movies which are upcoming, Akshay Kumar has signed up the another interesting movie which will be the sports Biopic based on hockey player who was awarded India to victory in three successive Olympics in the year 1948, 1952 and 1956. The name of the movie is Gold and Reema Kagti has signed the actor Akshay Kumar for Gold the Biopic based on hockey player Balbir Singh. As per the report, it is said that the maker of the film approached Swara Bhaskar to play the role reverse, Akshay Kumar. If there should arise an occurrence of a gesture, this would have been yet another of Kumar's new pairings. He has been seen romancing non-standard female on-screen characters like Bhumi Pednekar, Nimrat Kaur, Radhika Apte and Huma Qureshi recently. Bhaskar would have been another on-screen character who might have made an exceptional matching with Kumar. As per the Pinkvilla reports that Bhaskar is not a member of the film. It cites her as saying, "While I would LOVE to work with Akshay sir who I'm an aficionado of and with Reema Kagti whose work I respect profoundly; tragically the truth of the matter is I am not in any way a part of Gold. I know it's an extraordinary script and I wish the group well for the shoot." In any case, on a brighter side, Bollywood Life reports that the creators have reserved in Kunal Kapoor to play a hockey player too. A similar report expresses that both Kumar and Kapoor will spend the following five to six months preparing for their parts before the film goes on the floors in July or August this year. The Producer of the film Gold will be Ritesh Sidhwani's Excel Entertainment and Farhan Akhtar. The movie is slated to release in the year 2018 on Independence Day.
