Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar recently released two posters of his upcoming film ‘Gorkha’. Seeing these posters of Gorkha became viral on social media, although now an X Army officer has caught a mistake in it, to which Akshay has also replied.
X Gorkha made a mistake
In fact, Ex-Gorkha officer Major Manik M Jolly has pointed out that the manner in which the khukri is shown in the poster is not correct. He wrote in his tweet, ‘Dear Akshay Kumar, as an ex Gorkha officer I thank you for making this film… However, details matter. Please fix the khukri, there is a sharp edge on the other side….. it is not a sword. The khukri strikes from the inside of the blade. Thank you.’
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
