Director Alphonse Puthren had also recently announced that the final stages of the film which included its editing, its poster design, its music and sound recording, were all under work in full swing. The film's teaser was released couple months back and was well received for its catchy music and tunes. 

After a fan query on Facebook, Alphonse Puthren responded the comment saying, "Please don't expect KGF, RRR or Vikram from GOLD. In GOLD there is not even a gun or gun shot. Please don't expect a film from me like NERAM or PREMAM either. GOLD might be similar to NERAM, but it is unique in its own way. There are more than 40 characters newly written for GOLD. We all will try to entertain you. That our team will guarantee."
