GOLD: Akshay Kumar will recreate the iconic moment of Dhyan Chand not SALUTING Adolf Hitler

The much ambitious film of Reema Kagti, Gold, is not just completed but the trailer too was launched today, on June 25. By now, readers may be aware that the film talks about a man’s dream to get India in Olympics after its Independence. Set in the era of 40s, the film will also touch upon some iconic happenings of the pre and the post-Independence era. Considering the same, an important moment regarding Adolf Hitler was recreated in Gold featuring the leading man Akshay Kumar.

For the uninitiated, Akshay Kumar essays a role inspired by Dhyan Chand. Reports have it that director Reema Kagti decided to recreate one such special patriotic moment from the 1936 Berlin Olympics, albeit in her own creative style. It seems that during the said hockey match, the popular Indian player Dhyan Chand refused to salute Adolf Hitler during the opening ceremony. This was a mark of protest and the only other country that followed the suit was the American contingent.

Sources have claimed in recent reports that even though Gold is a fictional story, there are some incidents that are inspired by real life. Hence, this incident of Dhyan Chan showing courage and disrespecting the German tyrant became a talking point then and is an integral part of the history now. So owing to its importance, Reema Kagti reportedly decided to incorporate the same in the film too. The scene will feature Akshay Kumar [as Dhyan Chand] and British actor Jonathan Rushby who essays the role of Adolf Hitler.

For the uninitiated, two Olympics play a major role in Gold. One is the Berlin Olympics that happened in 1936 and the other is the London Olympics that happened in 1948. The significance of the latter is that not only was it India’s first match as an independent nation but also that it was the victory that followed.

Besides Akshay, Gold also features Mouni Roy [as his wife], Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor amongst others. The film is slated to release on August 15, marking the occasion of Independence Day.
