Akshay Kumar along with Pooja Entertainment will soon bring the brave act of an Indian hero to the audience. The superstar is all set to portray the real-life story of mining engineer Jaswant Singh Gill, who under very difficult circumstances saved miners trapped in a Coal mine in 1989. It is India’s first Coal mine Rescue.
The Union Minister of Coal and Mines-Govt of India Pralhad Joshi commemorated Late Gill on Twitter on this day.
Grateful to you @JoshiPralhad ji, for recalling India’s first coal mine rescue mission – this day 33yrs ago.
मेरा सौभाग्य है कि मैं #SardarJaswantSinghGill जी का किरदार अपनी फ़िल्म में निभा रहा हूँ. It’s a story like no other!@easterncoal

Overwhelmed with the opportunity of playing such an honourable role on the screen, Akshay Kumar expressed his delight, and took to his Twitter replying, “it’s a story like no other!”
While sharing the announcement on their social media handle Vashu Bhagnani retweeted saying,
Interestingly, the film will be directed by Tinu Suresh Desai who had earlier worked with Akshay Kumar on the National Award-winning film Rustom.
This Akshay Kumar starrer based on the heroic act of Sardar Jaswant Singh Gill is another example of the big-on-quality and high-on-entertainment content the studio hopes to bring audiences.
Pooja Entertainment’s untitled edge-of-the-seat real-life rescue drama starring Akshay Kumar is scheduled to release in 2023.
