As we bear the release of Akshay Kumar’s Mission Mangal, we see the buzz around it getting developed with each passing day. It’s still over a month, but it seems the makers will go full throttle from now to promote the film. There were some rumours about the length of Akshay’s role in the film, but only time will tell how much true it is.
Akshay Kumar took to his social media to share some inspiring things about the film. For the uninitiated, Mission Mangal revolves around ISRO’s (Indian Space Research Organization) successful Mars Orbiter mission stars.
Akshay Kumar’s post read:
“For several years, Hollywood made movies and TV shows like Star Trek, Star Wars, Gravity etc., This inspired an entire generation of inventors, scientists and explorers. I’ve always wanted to be a part of one such movie. A movie that inspires our future generations, one that celebrates imagination and curiosity. Mission Mangal is that film for me. A film that I hope, will inspire as much as it will entertain. Based on the Incredible story of India’s mission to Mars. Mission Mangal is a film about ordinary people achieving the extraordinary. A story that proves that creativity, ideas and dreams have no limit – just like the sky. This Independence day – the sky is not the limit.”
Akshay Kumar recently revealed in an interview with IANS that he’s playing the role of a scientist. On being asked if he’s playing the role of an astronaut, he said, “I’d like to correct you here. In Mission Mangal, I do not play an astronaut but a scientist and yes, I worked with an interesting mix of female co-actors in it. Well, it’s actually very subjective and never been a conscious decision. I pick films which excite me. For instance, I was also a part of Naam Shabana, where I most certainly wasn’t the central character and my female co-actor Taapsee Pannu had a much more important role to play. So that’s how it is.”
