Check here the details for Akshay Kumar’s biographical survival thriller movie Mission Raniganj Release Date, Star Cast, Trailer, Plot, and more.
After the superhit OMG 2, Akshay Kumar will be seen in Mission Raniganj: Bharat Rescue. However, the year 2022 did not turn out to be good for Akshay Kumar as his ambitious project ‘Samrat Prithviraj’ failed miserably at the box office, and ‘Bachchan Pandey’ lost ratings due to the storm created by ‘Kashmir Files’.
Akshay Kumar made a fitting comeback with OMG 2 in 2023, but the impact would have been greater had he not gone against the hype of Gadar 2. Still, OMG 2 is one of the hit movies of 2023. Now eyes are on Akki’s next called Mission Raniganj.
