In the teaser, we got to see the glimpses of each and every character and how they are gearing up for Mission Mangal!
Soon after Akshay dropped the teaser of Mission Mangal, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) left a comment on his post. They wrote, “Ek Desh. Ek Sapna. India to be a space superpower. Few Days to go for achieving new Milestone! #Chandrayaan2”. Akshay replied to them in an inspiring way by writing, “Sky has never been the limit for @isro.in! All the best to the team for #Chandrayaan2” Talking about Mission Mangal, Akshay had said to ANI, “While listening to so many real stories of women scientists, I found it amazing how they managed their homes while being so incredible at work. Through this film, I want to tell them that they’re great.” He further said, “Few people know NASA sent a satellite to Mars for close to Rs. 6000 crore and ISRO did it in only Rs. 450 crore. Just see the difference. A little common sense and we saved a lot of money.”
Mission Mangal is directed by Jagan Shakti and is scheduled to land in theatres on August 15, 2019. Akshay has even co-produced the film.
