Fresh off the success of his recent release, “OMG 2,” Bollywood powerhouse Akshay Kumar is back in action, this time with the teaser for his upcoming film, “Mission Raniganj.” Set to hit cinemas on October 6, the film follows the remarkable rescue mission of 65 miners in the Raniganj Coalfields in 1989, with Akshay Kumar stepping into the shoes of celebrated mining engineer Jaswant Singh Gill.
The recently released teaser offers a sneak peek into the challenging circumstances faced by the miners trapped underground and the unwavering determination of the man who vowed to save them. In the Raniganj Coalfields, a sudden downpour leaves 65 miners stranded and presumed dead by most. However, Jaswant Singh Gill takes on the daunting task of rescuing them, even if just one of the 65 miners remains alive.
Akshay Kumar, known for his diverse roles and dedication to portraying characters authentically, dons a turbaned look in the film, accompanied by glasses and simple cotton attire. This marks his return to playing a Sikh character after his 2019 portrayal of Havildar Ishar Singh in the war film “Kesari,” based on the historic Battle of Saragarhi.
Interestingly, Akshay’s “Kesari” co-star, Parineeti Chopra, is also part of “Mission Raniganj.” In the teaser, she can be seen in a white ensemble with her hair tied back, wearing a concerned expression.
“Mission Raniganj” is helmed by Tinu Suresh Desai, who previously directed Akshay in the critically acclaimed film “Rustom.” The movie also features a talented ensemble cast, including Kumud Mishra, Pavan Malhotra, Ravi Kishan, and Dibyendu Bhattacharya, among others.
Akshay Kumar took to Instagram to share the teaser, highlighting the courage and conviction of the real-life hero Jaswant Singh Gill. He wrote in the caption, “In 1989, one man showed courage and conviction that saved lives! #MissionRaniganjTeaser out now. Watch the story of Bharat’s true hero with #MissionRaniganj in cinemas on 6th October.”
As anticipation builds for “Mission Raniganj,” audiences eagerly await this heartwarming and inspiring tale of bravery and heroism in the face of adversity. Akshay Kumar’s portrayal of Jaswant Singh Gill promises to once again captivate viewers with his dedication to bringing powerful stories to the big screen.
