Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Akshay Kumar on Wednesday said he is set to play mining engineer Jaswant Singh Gill, who had rescued 64 miners from a flooded quarry in West Bengal in 1989, in an upcoming movie.

The actor said this in response to Union coal minister Pralhad Joshi's Twitter post, in which he remembered Gill on the 33rd anniversary of the country's "first coal mine rescue mission".

"Grateful to you @JoshiPralhad ji, for recalling India's first coal mine rescue mission - this day 33yrs ago. It's an honour for me to play #SardarJaswantSinghGill in a film. It's a story like no other! @easterncoal (sic)," Akshay wrote on the microblogging site. (PTI)
