Mistake In Akshay Kumar-Starrer Gorkha Poster; Check It Out
Mumbai: A day after the first-look poster of Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Gorkha’ was released, a retired Army officer pointed out an error.
Major Manik M Jolly, who had served in one of the Gorkha Rifles regiments, said that the shape of khukri (a type of machete) shown in the poster of ‘Gorkha’, was inaccurate.
“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,” Maj Jolly tweeted, posting a picture of khukri alongside the Gorkha poster.
The actor acknowledged the mistake and responded without delay, promising to take ‘utmost care’ to maintain authenticity while shooting for the film.
“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,” Akshay wrote.
The film, to be directed by Anand L Rai, will see Akshay playing the role of Major General Ian Cardozo who featured in the 1962, 1965 and 1971 wars.
