Actor Akshay Kumar interacted with his fans in a candid chat on Twitter with the hashtag #AskAkshay. The main purpose was to answer questions about his upcoming film Gold, helmed by Reema Kagti and featuring Naagin fame Mouni Roy, Kunal Kapoor, Amit Sadh and Vineet Kumar Singh.
Fans, however, ended up asking a wide range of questions - from his favourite character so far to how he deals with trolls, and what his favourite memory is as an actor.
Check out his responses:
Most memorable...scoring the only goal that I shoot in the film :) https://t.co/3PYN7logFa— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 10, 2018
To all the hockey players who brought our nation together fighting for this GOLD to the point we are still talking about it even today https://t.co/s0W4zUZuMr— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 10, 2018
A shout out to Bengalis
As much as I love every sport, an early morning game of beach volleyball does it for me ? https://t.co/z4BDiKMc8V— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 10, 2018

I will never forget when I was a newcomer and I brought my parents on set for the first time...to see their faces that day, it's something I will never forget. Their little boy who didn't go to college was now making movies https://t.co/ewiELwopXO— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 10, 2018
I would've wanted to join the army or coach youngsters in martial arts https://t.co/8A4XE5LrhH— Akshay Kumar (@akshaykumar) August 10, 2018
And those were the highlights. The hour of #AskAkshay then ended, and the actor went back to promoting Gold.
Gold is loosely based on the life of Balbir Singh, who was a part of the team that won the first Olympic medal for India as an independent nation in 1948. Powerfully combining sports and patriotic fervour, Gold has all the essential ingredients to be a blockbuster. Its genre has proven to be hugely successful in the past.
Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment, the film will release on 15 August, clashing with John Abraham-Manoj Bajpayee-starrer Satyamev Jayate.
