Akshay Kumar’s August release, Gold has earned the rare distinction of being the first official Bollywood film to be released in Saudi Arabia. The movie, which is based on the 1948 London Olympics, tells the story of India’s iconic win at the games where it defeated England, its former coloniser. It was released on August 15 and starred Amit Sadh, Kunal Kapoor and Vineet Kumar Singh.

Saudi Arabia has recently lifted the ban on Bollywood movies officially after a long gap of 35 years. An Indian theatre Kaala was also shown in Saudi Arabia but Akshay Kumar's film will go down in history as the first Bollywood film to get an official release in Saudi Arabia.

Akshay Kumar recently tweeted the news. Here is his tweet.

However, Gold is not the first film that was shown to the public of Saudi Arabia. It was a Hollywood film. The first film that was shown in Saudi Arabia's first movie theater on April 18 was Black Panther.
