Actor Akshay Kumar unveils the first official teaser of “Mission Mangal” – which tells the story of scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, which marked India's first interplanetary expedition.
Akshay Kumar captioned the teaser, “Ek Desh. Ek Sapna. Ek Ithihaas. The true story of India’s #SpaceMission to Mars is here. #MissionMangalTeaser out now! @taapsee @sonakshisinha @vidya_balan @TheSharmanJoshi @MenenNithya @IamKirtiKulhari @Jaganshakti @foxstarhindi #HopeProductions @isro”
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', which is being touted as India's first space film is based on true events, but the team has taken some creative liberties for cinematic purposes. The mission was successful because of the team work, and every character has their moment of glory in the screenplay. It is the story of an underdog team standing tall against all odds.
In the teaser, we get the glimpses of all the actors who are all set to launch the 'Mangalyaan'. Akshay who essays the role of a scientist Rakesh Dhawan is seen initiating the command for the launch of the spaceship.
Vidya Balan is seen giving instructions to start further procedures. Later in between the countdown of the launch, we get to see a sight of all the other cast in their roles.
Directed by Jagan Shakti, the film will hit the screens on August 15.
