Akshay Kumar, Mouni Roy break into gig at ‘Gold’ song launch


Akshay Kumar and his ‘Gold’ co-star Mouni Roy broke into impromptu gig at the song launch of ‘Gold’. At the song launch of ‘Naino Se Baandhi’, Akshay and Mouni broke into crazy dance as they suddenly climbed on the table and dances madly. Mouni was dressed in a stunning saree while Akshay Kumar was seen in suit, boot.

Mouni Roy took to her social media account to share picture of the event and she captioned the video as, “It was a happy happyday”.

‘Gold’ directed by Reema Kagti is inspired from real life incidents and is based on the sport of hockey.

"People should know more about other sports like hockey, kabaddi, football rather than cricket. The audience should know more about hockey, and it should be encouraged.

"People should know what happened in 1948... How we won the first Olympic gold medal in hockey after the independence of India. I think things also have changed because the government is supporting the sport a lot, the number of medals are increasing in the game, so I am happy seeing the encouragement," Akshay said.

In the film, Akshay plays a Bengali character named Tapan Das who encouraged young players to win hockey for independent India.

"I worked closely with our dialect coach. I have stayed in Kolkata for two years which actually helped me to play the character, its body language etc. I tried to speak with a Bengali accent... (but) I tried not to make it a caricature," he said.

"I hope after this film, hockey gets the respect that it commands. It is an important game that gave our country the first ever gold medal after independence. So I hope things change after our film," Akshay said.

The film also features Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Vineet Kumar Singh, Mouni Roy, Sunny Kaushal and the music is composed by Sachin-Jigar.

‘Gold’ is scheduled to release on August 15th
