Akshay Kumar all set to became a scientist
He plays the role of a senior ISRO scientist. “Akshay’s character puts the team together and drives them to achieve the goal. It’s more of him being a mentor to the young team,” a source close to the development told the Daily.
The source added, “The premise is based on true events, but the team has taken some creative liberties for cinematic purposes. The mission was successful because of the teamwork, and every character has their moment of glory in the screenplay. It is the story of an underdog team standing tall against all odds.”
The film has a huge star cast as it features Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menon, Kirti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi as the central characters.
Mission Mangal will hit the screens on August 15, 2019. Moreover, it will have a box office clash with John Abraham’s ‘Batla House’ and Prabhas’ ‘Saaho’.
