Akshay Kumar who is still basking in the glory of his last release, ‘OMG 2’, will next be seen in ‘Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue.’
The movie which will be released in theatres on October 6 and is inspired by a real-life incident at Raniganj Coalfield and from the heroic act of late Jaswant Singh Gill who led Bharat’s coal mine rescue mission.
On the occasion of Engineer’s Day today, September 15, Akshay Kumar gave a shout-out to Jaswant Gill and shared his pride in playing the role.
For those unknown, Jaswant Sing Gill is one of India’s unsung heroes who deserves a special place in history.
As the Additional Chief Mining Engineer of Coal India Limited (CIL), Gill led a rescue operation that saved the lives of 64 people who got trapped in a coal mine in West Bengal’s Raniganj on November 13, 1989.
On the special occasion, Akshay took to X (formerly known as Twitter) and wrote, “Happy #EngineersDay.
I could never even imagine myself studying hard to be an engineer.
But then I got an opportunity to play a brave, intelligent engineer like Jaswant Singh Gill ji in #MissionRaniganj.
