What started as an Assistant Directors journey for Bhopal’s 25 year Old Lakshya Kochhar has now turned into his Bollywood debut in GOLD- the historical period sports drama film directed by Reema Kagti and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar under the Excel Entertainment banner. Lakshya bagged his first film right after he completed assisting Shujaat Saudagar on Rock On 2.
Talking about his experience on working on Gold, Lakshya said “It’s been an overwhelming experience working with Reema Ma’am and Akshay Sir. I could not have asked for a better debut than Gold. Having worked with Excel Entertainment before behind the camera, it feels great to be on the other side this time. I am sure the audiences will love the film and the storyline will touch the right chord.”
Gold tells the real-life story of India’s first gold medal after independence at the Olympics. The movie is fictionalised tale of sports in India between 1933 and 1948 with a focus on hockey.
