In a recent interview, superstar Akshay Kumar opened up about the his latest release Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Resue, where he portrayed the role of Jaswant Singh Gill, a real-life unsung hero.
In a conversation with ANI, Khiladi Kumar said, “Mission Raniganj is about 71 miners who were trapped three hundred and fifty feet below the coal mine and this Sardar Jaswant Singh Gill who was an engineer and was there at that time. Some people from France and from the UK also came. They all said that it is impossible to get them out, they’re dead because there were almost trillion of gallons of water filled below with carbon dioxide sorted filling”
“Then there comes a man who decides that I am going to save them. I don’t know if there is any person who knows that it’s sure death still he himself went down and took them out one by one and he himself came last. I have done so many films, this film won’t be a commercial success but I can easily tell you it is the best film of my career.” he further added.
“Ye meri sabse behtareen, sabse imaandaar, sabse sachchi aur sabse achi film hai. What matters to me is that I have made an honest film”, he concluded.
Mission Raniganj opened to mostly positive critical response but has failed to make a mark at the box-office. He will be next seen in Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bade Miyan Chote Miyan with Tiger Shroff, Welcome to the Jungle, Hera Pheri 3, and Sky Force.
