Mouni and Akshay have started filming Gold in UK and as the actors were spotted on the sets, fan clubs shared a few pictures on social media. While Akshay Kumar started filming Gold last week, Mouni Roy too has joined him recently.
Gold, is a period sports drama based on the 1948 London Olympics. The central plot is about how independent India won its first Gold medal in hockey. In the pictures, Akshay is seen wearing a kurta with dhoti while Mouni is in a saree but in a completely new look.
Regarding Mouni’s role in Gold, a source told Mumbai Mirror earlier, that the Naagin actor will extensively shoot with Akshay Kumar and she “will be seen in a completely different avatar to suit the era. She is one of the few female characters in the otherwise male dominated narrative.” We also came to know earlier that Mouni Roy will have to shoot for about 20-25 days for the film. For her role she needs to don an Indian avatar, and in her latest look also, we see her in a saree with puffed-sleeve blouse.
Akshay Kumar-starrer Gold is a special film for our television star Mouni Roy as this marks her Bollywood debut. We saw Akshay’s first look from the film Gold, and thanks to producer Ritesh Sidhwani we also know that the team is currently shooting in London. He confirmed the news on Twitter on July 1 and wrote, “#Gold on the field tom all the best @akshaykumar @kagtireema @Roymouni @kapoorkkunal @TheAmitSadh #sunnykaushal #vineetsingh.” But now when we got to see Mouni’s look from Gold sets, we are in awe of her, all over again.
Amit Sadh and Kunal Kapoor also play pivotal roles in he film, and were in fact in London before Akshay Kumar. They were being trained in the sport under different coaches for their role.
