Recently, the trailer of Mission Mangal starring Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi, Nithya Menen and Kirti Kulhari was launched. Based on ISRO’s mission to Mars, the film will showcase the journey of the scientists who helped in the successful launch. While the film’s trailer garnered a lot of praises, even the Indian Space Research Organisation congratulated the team of Mission Mangal and wished Akshay and his team all the luck.
Returning the favour, Akshay took to Twitter and wished the team of ISRO all the luck for their upcoming launch of Chandrayaan 2 on July 22, 2019. Kumar wrote, “Thank you so much and wishing best of luck once again to #TeamISRO for #Chandrayaan2.” After the trailer was launched, everyone loved the story of the triumph of the group of scientists involved in the work related to India’s mission to Mars. Kumar will be seen in the film as the mission director and surely left a lasting impression on the minds of the audience.
After seeing the trailer, the team of ISRO had tweeted, “As #ISRO prepares for landmark launch of #Chandrayaan2, #TeamISRO wishes @akshaykumar all the best for #MissionMangal and all his future endeavour.” Chandrayaan 2 was supposed to be launched on July 14 but due to some technical glitch, the launch was postponed to July 22. It will be a second attempt at launching a mission to the moon.
Meanwhile, the film has an ensemble cast and at the trailer launch, all the stars were present, Sonakshi and Akshay were out of Mumbai and that day travelled especially for the launch of the much awaited film. The film is being helmed by Jagan Shakti and is produced by R Balki and Akshay Kumar jointly. Mission Mangal kicked off in November and despite the controversy involving the script, the film completed a few months back. Mission Mangal is slated to release on August 15, 2019.
