Akshay To Turn Rescuer Again?

Point 1 optionHere’s some breaking news! It seems Akshay Kumar has a sudden affinity for subjects inspired by real-life incidents, especially rescue dramas.  After Airlift, where he played Ranjit Katyal, a Kuwait-based businessman who evacuated Indians based in Kuwait during the Gulf War, the actor is now all set to play a rescue hero again, we’ve come to know.

Kumar has bought the rights to the 1989 Raniganj Coalfield rescue mission, where 64 miners were trapped in a coal mine hundreds of feet underground, and were rescued through a large borehole drilled from the surface.   

A rescue capsule was forged out of iron and steel and the miners were hauled to safety, one by one, by a makeshift pulley. The hero of the rescue operation was J S Gill, Additional Chief Mining Engineer, who risked his own life and went down the borehole in the capsule and organised the evacuation of the miners.

No guesses who Akshay Kumar will be playing!
