Last autumn I was in India filming Gold. Directed by Reema Kagti and starring Akshay Kumar, it tells the story of India's first gold medal as an independent country: in the men's hockey at the London Olympics of 1948.
I play Sir James Benson, the head of the British Hockey Association. The trailer apparently broke records for most hits within 24 hours of its posting. The film is due for release in August.
