Akshay Kumar has brought many real heroes to the big screen. The next in his line of films inspired by true events is a biopic in which he will play late mining engineer Sardar Jaswant Singh Gill.
Akshay Kumar will soon be seen on the big screen in a never-before-seen avatar as Jaswant Singh Gill who rescued many miners from a coal mine in 1989 which is known as India’s first coal mine rescue. On Wednesday, the actor revealed that he appreciates the work.
Responding to Union Minister of Coal and Mines Pralhad Joshi’s tweet, Kumar wrote, “Thank you @JoshiPralhad Ji, for remembering the first coal mine rescue operation in India – 33 years ago today. I play Sardar Jaswant Singh Gill in his next film . It’s a story like no other.”
