Directed by Reema Kagti, the film will be about India's first Olympic medal as a free nation. It was won in Men's Field hockey.

Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, the film will be hit the screens on Independence Day, 2018. But we are sure it will be worth the wait.
Farhan, Ritesh and Reema can't wait to start to work on the project.
Akshay Kumar, who was last seen in Rustom this year, is busy with Subhash Kapoor's Jolly LLB2 with Huma Qureshi. He will also be seen in Enthiran 2.0 with superstar Rajinikanth.
Reema's last film as a director was Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerjee and Kareena Kapoor Khan's Talaash in 2012.
