Over the last few months, Bollywood has treated audiences with biopics on varied personalities, be it Sanjay Dutt or Indian hockey player, Sandeep Singh. The upcoming months too will witness many biopics including the one on Rani Laxmibai. So, when the question of biopics was popped to Akshay Kumar, during a media interaction, the actor had a different take on the same.

Speaking to the media, Khiladi Kumar revealed that he will never make a biopic on himself and even if some else decides to make the same, he would not want his son Aarav, to portray him in the movie. He added, “I will never make a biopic on myself, never will I even write a book. I feel there are so many other stories to be told from the history, there are so many amazing people who have turned India in a positive direction. I will be a fool to make a biopic on myself, I would rather make a biopic about a real hero.”

Sensible enough, right?

Nevertheless, talking about his projects, the ‘Padman’ actor will be seen in the sports drama ‘Gold’ opposite television sensation Mouni Roy. Directed by Reema Kagti, ‘Gold’ is set in the pre-independence era, Akshay plays the role of Tapan Das in the film, whose goal is to win India’s first gold medal in hockey as an independent nation.

Also featuring Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor, Vineet Singh, and Sunny Kaushal, the film will release on August 15.
