Akshay Kumar has unveiled the motion poster for his eagerly anticipated survival-thriller, 'Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue,' which is set to captivate audiences. The movie draws inspiration from the remarkable true story of mining engineer Jaswant Singh Gill, who heroically saved 64 miners at the Raniganj Coalfields in 1989. Initially titled 'Capsule Gill,' the film primarily focused on Akshay Kumar's character as the central protagonist. However, a recent announcement has introduced a title change, showcased in the motion poster and teaser release.

This marks Akshay Kumar's third venture following the successes of 'Selfiee' and 'OMG 2,' further heightening the anticipation among his dedicated fan base.

The film's title alteration from 'Mission Raniganj: The Great Indian Rescue' to 'Mission Raniganj: The Great Bharat Rescue' is noteworthy. This move has caught the attention of fans and the industry, especially given the ongoing India-Bharat debate that has arisen during the G20 summit. It is speculated that the change in the film's title aligns with the actor's commitment to prevailing national sentiment.

In recent times, various political parties in India have raised objections concerning references to 'Bharat' rather than 'India.' These concerns arose in relation to the G20 dinner invite, where President Droupadi Murmu was addressed as the 'President of Bharat' instead of the 'President of India.' Furthermore, Prime Minister Narendra Modi was referred to as the 'Prime Minister of Bharat' during his visit to Indonesia for the 20th ASEAN-India Summit and the 18th East Asia Summit.
