Akshay Kumar is all set for his upcoming sports-drama film Gold and we have already seen the promising trailer of the movie. Actor and producer Akshay who is working in the movies based on the real-life characters and inspirational social dramas would like to make a biopic on the life of Indian sprinter Hima Das. The 18 years old girl became the first Indian athlete to win a gold in a track event.
In a recent interaction with media at an event organized by Edelweiss group here on Saturday to support & wish India contingent for Asian Games 2018, when Akshay was asked on which Indian sports personality he would like to make a biopic as a producer- he replied, “I would like to make a biopic on Hima Das because she is a track runner… I think it was a very rare feat to achieve because somebody who comes from interiors of India and wins the gold medal in track (running) event was really incredible.”
“India has been a little bit weak when it comes to performing in track events and I feel we should encourage and support that form of sports to show the world that we have great talent when it comes to running as we daily run so fast to catch a bus or a train… so, I would love to make a biopic on her life,” he added.
Further, when he was asked if the movies on sports could generate the feeling for sports among Indian youth- he said, “I really liked the story of Gold which is due for its release. I thought that this story needs to be told. t is very interesting and real story. There are some glorious achievements achieved by our people, by our country but it’s not in the public domain. Before doing this film, I didn’t know that we won our first Olympic gold medal in 1948. Most of us don’t know when, how, where and in which circumstances we were able to win that gold medal by defeating, on their own turf, England who ruled us for 200 years… so, this kind of things cinema can represent all this in a very nice way.”
“If we make a documentary on this incident then one might watch it instead of that if we incorporate 4-5 songs, 1-2 fight sequence, hero and heroine in it then, it looks entertaining.”
Well, Akshay made a very valuable point saying that the last statement at the interview. Make sure you guys watch the film and let Gold rule the Box Office.
