Upon hearing the song, you may feel pride. So, Akshay Kumar’s Gold will be a treat to the fans without any doubt. Every year, Akshay Kumar can be seen in a movie that is related to the army or patriotism. Till now, Akshay Kumar has done a great job in these roles. Therefore, similar kind of thing can be expected from Gold as well. The song may evoke patriotic sentiments without any doubt.
During an interview with producer Ritesh Sidwani and director Reema Kagti, it has been said that Akshay Kumar is not chosen for the movie just because it is related to patriotism. It is true that Akshay has been a part of lots of movie based on nationalism these days. Director Reema Kagti has said that the reason behind the choice of Akshay for the role of Tapan Das is pretty simple. According to Reema, “He relates to it. He identified it and it is working for him. I think he figured out that works for him and obviously people are convinced and they believe that he is working in that zone. So, people go out and watch those films. That’s why they are successful. I think all directors and writers look for the best person which suit the character.”
