Akshay Kumar is back with another action-packed film, Mission Raniganj, which is inspired by a real-life incident at Raniganj coalfield and the heroic act of late Jaswant Singh Gill, who led Bharat’s coal mine rescue mission in 1989. Gill, a mining engineer from Amritsar, volunteered to save the lives of 64 people who were trapped inside a flooded coal mine in Raniganj, West Bengal. He risked his own life by descending into the mine with a makeshift capsule and brought out the survivors one by one. He was awarded several honors for his bravery, including the Padma Shri in 1991. He passed away in 2019 at the age of 80.

Mission Raniganj Is A Tribute To Jaswant Singh Gill
