GOLD: The man and his incredible story that inspired the Akshay Kumar-starrer
GOLD struck a conversation since the day it was announced, and why not? It is not every day you get to hear about the first team that brought home an Olympics gold medal to India as an independent nation. The tricky teaser further stumped fans when it urged people to stand for the National Anthem, only to play that of England. The makers forced us to think and consider how we take freedom for granted. And then came the trailer, which further intrigued us with the question, Ab India free to ho gaya, lekin team hi nahi bacha, pointing out how freedom came at the cost of partition and lives lost. But who was the real hero who inspired the story? One surely wonders. Let’s dig into the diaries of the past to bring forth the events and the incredible man whose journey this movie unravels.
