After a retired Indian Army officer pointed out a mistake in the poster of Akshay Kumar’s upcoming film, Gorkha, the actor promised to ‘take utmost care’ to maintain authenticity while shoot.
Major Manik M Jolly, an ex-Gorkha officer, pointed out that the Khukri used in the posters is not correct.
He wrote, “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 (sic).”
Replying to his Tweet Akshay wrote,”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.”
Gorkha movie is based on the life of war hero Major General Ian Cardozo from the prestigious Gorkha Regiment of the Indian Army.
