Retired army officer points out mistake in Akshay Kumar’s Gorkha poster

The Cinema Times, Kathmandu – Akshay Kumar will be next seen in a biopic Gorkha which is based on the life of Major General Ian Cardozo, a legendary officer of the Gorkha regiment of the Indian Army (5th Gorkha Rifles). The makers recently released their movie poster. But upon releasing the posters, an ex-Army officer pointed out a mistake in the poster.

Two posters were released online from the movie where Akshay Kumar was seen holding a curved knife or a khukri. But Manik M Jolly said that the khukuri is different from what is shown in the official poster. He even posted a tweet, “Dear @akshaykumar ji, as an ex Gorkha officer, my thanks to you for making this movie. However, details matter. Kindly get the Khukri right. The sharp edge is on the other side. It is not a sword. Khukri strikes from inner side of blade. Ref pic of Khukri att. Thanks.”

Akshay on the other hand wrote back, “Dear Maj Jolly, thank you so much for pointing this out. We’ll take utmost care while filming. I’m very proud and honoured to be making Gorkha. Any suggestions to get it closest to reality would be most appreciated.”

Kumar will be seen in the role of legendary hero who will fought in the war of 1962, 1965 and Indo-Pakistan war of 1971.

Presented by Akshay Kumar and Colour Yellow Productions in association with Cape of Good Films, Gorkha is produced by Aanand L Rai and Himanshu Sharma and directed by Sanjay Puran Singh Chauhan.
