In the world of movies, Akshay Kumar has changed the title of his upcoming film from “Mission Raniganj” to “The Great Bharat Rescue.” It’s quite a shift in his movie journey.
Akshay Kumar, the famous actor, recently shared a cool video poster for his new movie, “Mission Raniganj.” But what caught everyone’s attention was the word “Bharat” in his Instagram post.
Initially, the movie was called “The Great Indian Rescue,” but now it’s “The Great Bharat Rescue.” This name change is happening at a time when there’s a big debate about whether we should officially call our country ‘Bharat’ instead of ‘India.’
There’s another interesting change too. In his Instagram caption, Akshay first wrote, “Watch the story of India’s true hero…” But he later changed it to “Bharat’s true hero.” Someone on Instagram noticed this and said, “He changed ‘Great Indian Rescue’ to ‘Great Bharat Rescue,’ but the caption still says ‘India’s.'”
This rescue story is directed by Tinu Suresh Desai, who also directed “Rustom.” It’s produced by Vashu and Jackky Bhagnani’s Pooja Entertainment and stars the talented Parineeti Chopra. While we’ll get a sneak peek on Thursday, the full movie will be in theaters on October 6.
What’s intriguing is that Akshay Kumar, on India’s Independence Day, announced that he’s now an Indian citizen. Until then, he had Canadian citizenship. Interestingly, Akshay won his first National Film Award for Best Actor for his role in “Rustom” (2016), which was directed by the same person behind “Mission Raniganj.”
The debate about ‘Bharat’ versus ‘India’ started when invitations for a fancy dinner during the G20 Summit in New Delhi got everyone talking. The word ‘India’ was replaced with ‘Bharat,’ and that caused quite a stir.
