Akshay Kumar‘s latest film Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue, which is based on the true story of the late Jaswant Singh Gill, who led a successful coal mine rescue mission in 1989, has received a poor response from the audience on its first day of release.
Mission Raniganj, which is directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, was expected to offer a blend of drama, inspiration and patriotism, but it seems to have failed to connect with the audience. The film’s music, has also not created much buzz. The film’s trailer, had received decent response, but it seems that any hype did not translate into box office numbers.

The film has collected only 2.80 cr nett day one after rally disappointing advance bookings, which is a significantly low in comparison to Akshay’s previous films. Film grew on day two Saturday and collected 4.80 cr nett. Film added 5 cr nett on Sunday with marginal growth due to India Australia World Cup cricket match.

Mission Raniganj is Akshay Kumar‘s third release of the year, after OMG 2 and Selfiee. The actor has an impressive lineup of projects in the pipeline, including Soorarai Pottru (the Hindi remake of the Tamil hit), Housefull 5, SkyForce and Welcome To The Jungle. Akshay is known for his versatility and consistency at the box office, but it remains to be seen if he can bounce back from the disappointing start of Mission Raniganj.
