Gold is being produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. Earlier, a media report said that television actress Mouni Roy has been signed to play a key role in the film.
“Mouni will be seen in a completely different avatar to suit the era. She will film for 20-25 days in August and is one of the few female characters in the otherwise male dominated narrative. She will be shooting extensively with Akshay,” the report said.
