Film actor Akshay Kumar has featured in these films, which are directed by R. Balki.

The film will clash with John Abraham's cop drama, infused with power-packed action and punch dialogues.

The most awaited movie of the year, Akshay' Gold is to release on this Independence Day.

Gold opens in theatres along with John Abraham's Satyameva Jayate. "Gold is a brilliant film about India's first gold medal as a free country at the Olympics". This feat was achieved by the Indian men's hockey team on August 12, 1948.

Read the true story of Gold here. The match scenes are very nicely presented but at a few places, some of the cliches could have been avoided. "The patriotic fervor comes out perfectly!" mentions Bollywood Hungama in its review.

Akshay Kumar as Tapan Das, the manager for independent India's hockey team in the Gold.

And if you're not into light-hearted videos, then there's this one featuring Gadkari highlighting the importance of traffic rules.

Rumours of the actor having bagged the role at the recommendation of Salman Khan had been circulating for a while, especially since she appeared in an episode of Bigg Boss season 11 alongside the Race 3 actor. She knows her frames really well.

Appreciating Akshay Kumar's concern for social activism, the Minister recalled his recent movies "Padman'and 'Toilet: Ek Prem Katha" which have gone a long way in passing the government's message of cleanliness and hygiene. The film is all about patriotism, a subject that has become Akshay Kumar's homeground for some years now. Mouni Roy whose debut film has yet not released, has three films in her kitty already!

Sabarmati Riverfront turned Gold and it is a view to behold.
