Akshay Kumar starrer The Great Indian Rescue finally gets a release date. The movie, which was earlier titled Capsule Gill, is all set to hit the theatres on October 5 this year.
The Great Indian Rescue is based on the real incident surrounding the late Jaswant Singh Gill, the former additional chief mining officer, who saved the lives of 65 people trapped in a flooded coal mine in Raniganj in West Bengal in 1989.
The makers have shot the movie in Yorkshire last year. The film will see Akshay play the character of Gill while it also stars Parineeti Chopra in a pivotal role.
The film is produced by Vashu Bhagnani, Deepshikha Deshmukh, Jackky Bhagnani and Ajay Kapoor while it is directed by Tinu Suresh Desai.
Tinu Suresh Desai’s last film Rustom (2016) also starred Akshay Kumar in the lead role.
