Mission Raniganj Is A Tribute To Jaswant Singh Gill
The film is directed by Tinu Suresh Desai and produced by Pooja Entertainment. It is a tribute to the brave and honest engineer Jaswant Singh Gill, who risked his own life to save the trapped miners. He used a capsule device to descend into the mine and bring out the survivors one by one. He was later awarded the Sarvottam Jeevan Raksha Padak by the President of India for his act of bravery.
The movie was earlier titled The Great Indian Rescue, but the title was changed to Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue amid the controversy over India’s name change row. The decision was taken by the makers to avoid any legal issues and to resonate with the patriotic theme of the movie. Also, The Great Indian Rescue, has been changed into a tagline, “The Great Bharat Rescue.”
