Akshay Kumar Friday announced the first look of his upcoming film, Gorkha. The movie is based on the life of Major General Ian Cardozo, the first war-disabled officer of the Indian Army to command a battalion and a brigade.
Taking to Twitter, Kumar wrote, “Sometimes you come across stories so inspiring that you just want to make them. #Gorkha – on the life of legendary war hero, Major General Ian Cardozo is one such film. Honoured to essay the role of an icon and present this special film.”
