On working with Akshay, Mouni said he is an fantastic and great co-star.
'I couldn't have asked for something more, someone up there is really kind, that have got me to work with some human being like him, ' Mouni said.

She said: "You should actually pose this question to Ritesh (Sidhwani, producer of Gold)".
It remains to be seen if the other Independence Day release this year, John Abraham-starrer Satyameva Jayate, manages to eat into Gold's business significantly. Of course, Kumar has invited fans to watch the film when it drops on August 15, to find out.
