CELEBRATING AKSHAY KUMAR’S ROLE IN ‘ MISSION RANIGANJ ‘
On Engineer’s Day, observed on September 15, Akshay Kumar paid tribute to Jaswant Gill and expressed his pride in portraying this character. Jaswant Singh Gill is a lesser-known Indian hero who deserves recognition in our history books. Serving as the Additional Chief Mining Engineer of Coal India Limited (CIL), Gill led a rescue operation on November 13, 1989, saving 64 lives trapped in a coal mine in Raniganj, West Bengal.
The courageous portrayal of Jaswant Singh Gill by Akshay Kumar played a pivotal role in the successful rescue of miners trapped in a flooded coal mine in Raniganj in November 1989. This operation is documented as the world’s largest and most successful rescue mission against all odds.
The film holds immense promise, and the teaser has left us eagerly anticipating more. The impact of the teaser leaves no doubt that this movie will offer a unique cinematic experience. ‘Mission Raniganj’ is directed by Tinu Suresh Desai.
On this special day, Akshay shared on X (formerly known as Twitter), “Happy #EngineersDay. I never thought I’d become an engineer, but I had the opportunity to portray a brave and intelligent engineer like Jaswant Singh Gill in #MissionRaniganj. I’ve fulfilled my parents’ wishes.”
