Mission Raniganj: More Than Just a Movie

Airlift: The Untold Human Drama Amid War
Here’s a throwback to 2016: Airlift, directed by Raja Krishna Menon. Akshay teams up with Nimrat Kaur to take us through the harrowing times of the Iraq-Kuwait war. Oh, and let’s not forget, this film was a box office smash, pulling in over ₹100 crore! Trust Akshay to turn an intense story into blockbuster material.
Toilet: Ek Prem Katha: Changing Minds, One Movie at a Time
Okay, next up is this gem of a film where Akshay shares the screen with Bhumi Pednekar.

The film was a hit and even managed to generate public debate.
Mission Mangal: Reaching for the Stars, Literally!
Alright, space geeks, this one’s for you. In Mission Mangal, Akshay is part of a star-studded ensemble cast that brings to life ISRO’s ambitious Mars mission. It’s like a science lesson, but way cooler. The film does a fabulous job showcasing the brilliance and resourcefulness of ISRO’s scientists.
Rustom: True Crime on the Big Screen
In Rustom, Akshay plays a Navy officer, and he’s got Ileana D’Cruz by his side. The film not only has an engrossing story but also boasts a memorable soundtrack. But the real kicker? It’s all based on a true story, which makes it even more gripping.
Special 26: The Ultimate Con Job
Who doesn’t love a good heist flick? Special 26, directed by Neeraj Pandey, is based on a scam from the ’80s and features heavy-hitters like Manoj Bajpayee and Anupam Kher. But it’s Akshay who really steals the show (and some other things in the movie, wink wink!).
