Army Officer Points Out Mistake in 'Gorkha' Poster; Akshay Kumar is Thankful
Akshay Kumar has his kitty full with enviable projects. After Atrangi Re and Raksha Bandhan, the superstar is collaborating with Aanand L Rai for Gorkha. The movie is a biopic based on the life of Major General Ian Cardozo. He is a legendary officer of the Gorkha regiment of the Indian Army (5th Gorkha Rifles).
The makers shared the first poster of the film on Friday. It showcases, Akshay Kumar looking fierce, holding a Khukri. But an ex Gorkha officer soon pointed out a major mistake in the poster.
Taking to Twitter, Major Manik M Jolly pointed out that a traditional Khukri looks different than depicted in the poster. Akshay soon responded with a thank you and added they will take utmost care while filming the movie.
Check out the tweets here:
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. pic.twitter.com/LhtBlQ9UGn
