On Thursday, the teaser for the next Akshay Kumar movie “Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue” was The teaser opens with a typical day at the West Bengali coalfield of Raniganj before a coal miner notices a leak, which ultimately causes floods inside the coalfield, trapping the workers. As he encourages his crew on the ground and gets ready to rescue the workers trapped inside the coal mine, Akshay’s character rises to the challenge.
The disaster in the Raniganj coalfield and the valiant deed of the late Jaswant Singh Gill, who oversaw India’s coal mine rescue operation, served as the inspiration for the movie. In November 1989, the brave Jaswant Singh Gill (played by Akshay Kumar) made a crucial contribution to the world’s largest and most successful rescue operation against all odds, which involved freeing every living miner trapped within a flooded coal mine in Raniganj.
Mission Raniganj, produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Jackky Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, and Ajay Kapoor, is presented by Vashsu Bhagnani and is a Pooja Entertainment production. Tinu Suresh Desai is the director.
The movie is scheduled to premiere on October 6, 2023, in theatres. ‘Bharat’: The Great Rescue Operation The possible title for Raniganj was The Great Indian Rescue. The internet couldn’t help but note how the tentative title made it to the poster just below the final title, but with an odd tweak, when Akshay unveiled the movie’s official title along with the motion poster on Wednesday.
The Great Bharat Rescue took the place of “The Great Indian Rescue.” This move occurs at a time when the nation is debating whether or not to formally rename India as Bharat. Additionally, a user on Instagram noted that Akshay had initially written in the post, “Watch the story of India’s true hero,” But soon after, it was changed to “Bharat’s true hero.” He modified Great Indian Rescue to Great Bharat Rescue, but the caption still refers to “India’s,” according to the comment, which said, “Great Indian rescue ko toh Great Bharat Rescue kar diya par caption mein phir bhi India’s likh diya.” The user then responded to his own message by saying, “Haha kiya change abhi (haha, he changed it just now).”
Parineeti Chopra also appears in the rescue drama, directed by Rustom filmmaker Tinu Suresh Desai, and made by Vashu and Jackky Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment. While the trailer will debut on Thursday, the movie is expected to hit theatres in 6 October.
On Independence Day, Akshay just recently declared that he now has Indian citizenship. Prior to this, the actor was just a Canadian citizen. It’s interesting to note that Akshay’s most recent project with Mission Raniganj director, Rustom (2016), earned him his first National Film Award for Best Actor.
The Bharat vs. India argument began when President Draupadi Murmu sent official dinner invitations to heads of state and chief ministers during the G20 Summit in New Delhi, which sparked a controversy because the word “India” was changed to “Bharat.”
