Actor Akshay Kumar‘s next feature film, which was tentatively titled “The Great Indian Rescue”, will soon hit theatres. Also starring Parineeti Chopra, the movie is based on the life of mining engineer Jaswant Singh Gill, who had rescued 64 miners from a flooded quarry in West Bengal in 1989.

However, according to reports, the movie has now been rebranded as ‘Mission Raniganj’, and fans can look forward to the teaser’s release soon.

Talking more on the real-life hero, a resident of Amritsar, Gill received several awards for his act of bravery. He died in 2019 at the age of 80.
“The Great Indian Rescue” marks a reunion of Kumar and Chopra after they featured together in 2019’s “Kesari”.
The film is backed by Pooja Entertainment and directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, who had previously directed Akshay’s 2016 movie “Rustom”. It is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani and Ajay Kapoor.
Coming back to Akshay, he is currently basking in the success of his movie OMG 2, along side Pankaj Tripathi and Yami Gautam. Yami, who played Kamini Maheshwari in ‘OMG 2,’ in an interaction with Hindustan Times mentioned that during the second lockdown, she got a call from Akshay Kumar. He said that he has come across one of the best scripts of his career and he really wants the story to come out. He then added that he would love to introduce the director Amit Rai to her for the narration of the story. After the narration, Yami was glad about the active conventions. She knew the subject would raise some questions and the team saw this as an opportunity to start a discussion rather than a debate.

‘OMG 2’ speaks about the need for sex education in the Indian education system. The film states how ‘kaam shastra’ has been a part of Indian society for decades, yet sex education is a taboo subject.
