Akshay Kumar was in Mumbai on Friday for the song launch of his upcoming movie Gold which is a period drama. The movie also stars Mouni Roy, Amit Sadh among others in pivotal roles.

Akshay was busy holidaying in the US with wife Twinkle Khanna and their kids, Aarav and Nitara, however, he had to fly back to Mumbai for a few professional commitments.

Soon, he flew to London to kickstart shooting for his upcoming comedy flick Housefull 4 which also stars Riteish Deshmukh, Kriti Sanon among others. 

About the same, a source revealed to an Indian daily, “The entire Housefull 4 team is reaching London two days in advance to gear up for the shoot. After the Gold event, Akki will fly to the UK capital for a 25-day schedule of the film.”

Akshay and Riteish have remained constant in all the Housefull franchise movies and we cannot wait to witness the duo tickle our funny bones yet again.

Coming to Gold,  the movie is set in the pre-independence era and is a story about a young assistant manager, Tapan Das, whose only wish is to win India its first gold medal in hockey as an independent nation. Akshay Kumar will be seen in the role of Tapan Das, while Mouni Roy plays his wife.

Extensively shot in London and Patiala, the trailer of the film was released recently, and it received immense love and appreciation.

Directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar, Gold will be clashing with John Abraham’s Satyamev Jayate.
