From the trailer, it seems that Akshay is gearing up to offer a stellar performance once again in the sport drama named Gold by the director Reema Kagti. Debut of television actor Mouni Roy will be marked with this movie. In addition to Akshay and Mouni, Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh, Sunny Kaushal and Vineet Kumar Singh will be seen in this movie too.
In the movie, Akshay and Mouni will be seen as a Bengali married couple. Party song for the movie has been shot recently which comes with the title “Mono Beena”. In this song, both Akshay and Mouni will be seen in a complete Bengali avatar.
Composition of the song has done by Tanishq Bagchi. It is believed that Akshay has given his inputs in the song too. The composer has said, “The idea to change the lyrics from ‘Mona Lisa’ to ‘Mono Beena’ came from Akshay sir. He reasoned that it would sound better with a Bengali girl’s name. Reema was also very supportive and told me to immediately lock the idea.” Following to a discussion with the producers Ritesh Sidwani and Farhan Akhtar, they have welcomed the idea also.
Through the song, a fresh voice named Yasir will be introduced as the male vocal. However, portion of the female counter part has been sung by Monali Thakur and Shashaa Tirupati.
For the song, a band has been formed especially in Chennai. It is said by Tanishq, “It is very jazz-oriented, so I assembled a band that comprised musicians from different acts because we required the live orchestra feel.”
In spite of being a party song, it may not be like an item number. It is hoped that the audience will like this song. Later on, Tanishq has added “The brief was for a retro but classy number, not an item song. Since the characters are Bengali I thought of bringing in the blues and jazz and we are optimistic the audience will love it”
