On Friday, Akshay Kumar released his forthcoming film Gorkha’s poster on social media. Soon after the poster release, an ex-Army officer points out a mistake in the poster.
Ex-Gorkha officer, Manik M Jolly, said that the khukri is different from what is shown on the poster. 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.”
Reverting to this, Akshay Kumar politely accepted the mistake and thanked Mr. Manik M Jolly for guiding on this. 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.
