New Delhi: The teaser of Akshay Kumar's upcoming sports drama, 'Gold' was recently revealed and needless to say, it left the audience highly impressed. The film is believed to be released on the Independence Day.
However, A report in Times of India claimed that the film may face a Box Office clash with 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi'.
Actress Kangana Ranaut is essaying the lead role in 'Manikarnika' and the movie is expected to release at the same time, that is during Independence Day. However, there has been no official statement from the makers on the same.
Akshay-starrer 'Gold' is based on the true incidents of India winning the Olympic gold medal in hockey as an independent nation in 1948. The film is directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under the banner Excel Entertainment. The film will mark the Bollywood debut of popular TV actress Mouni Roy and will also feature Amit Sadh in a pivotal role.
The one-minute-long clip of 'Gold', that was released recently, showed Akshay in the role of an Indian hockey team coach, who is madly in love with hockey and his country.

Last year, Akshay had shared his look from the movie, in which he was seen sporting a thin moustache and was dressed in a chequered waistcoat and pants.

On the other hand, 'Manikarnika: The Queen of Jhansi' is being directed by Krish and produced by Zee Studios in association with Kamal Jain and Nishant Pitti. The film was recently in news after rumours surfaced that there was a romantic sequence in the film, which was strongly dismissed by both Kangana and film writer Vijayendra Prasad.
