‘Special Correspondent (Mumbai): Mission Mangal’ teaser: Multi-female star cast set to deliver Goosebumps. The film is scheduled to release on August 15. Akshay Kumar’s voice resonates in the just-released teaser of Mission Mangal, the actor’s latest effort exploring the Bollywood brand of patriotism. “This is Rakesh Dhawan. Mission Control initiating command for launch.”
Mission Mangal, directed by Jagan Shakti is based on Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), or the Mangalyaan project launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on November 2013, to put a space probe in planet Mars’ orbit.
The 45-second trailer delivers several goosebumps moments featuring multi-female star cast, including Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen.
Unveiling the teaser on Tuesday, Akshay took to social media and wrote: “Ek Desh. Ek Sapna. Ek Ithihaas. The true story of India’s Space Mission to Mars is here.”
Akshay looks impressive as the scientist spearheading the mission, which has been a milestone for Indian space research.
“Mission Mangal, a film which I hope will inspire as much as entertain. A film which I’ve done specially for my daughter and children her age to familiarise them with the incredible true story of India’s mission to Mars,” he had tweeted.
The film is scheduled to release on August 15.
