Mission Mangal, starring a spectacular cast of Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sharman Joshi, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and Sonakshi Sinha, has got another poster to its credits and this time it’s more polished.
The story is based on Mission Mangal the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), or the Mangalyaan project to put a space probe into Mars’ orbit, launched by ISRO in November 2013. Akshay leads the team, and in the teaser, we saw him initiating the countdown to the mission.
Akshay took to his Twitter and posted,
“Ek kahaani, jisne Indian space science ki paribhasha hi badal di! Get ready for the
#MissionMangal Trailer, coming on 18th July.

Similar to the first poster, even in this one the cast is divided by the satellite missile but this one brings in bright colours. Mission Mangal is slated to release on this Independence Day and will clash with John Abraham’s Batla House and Prabhas’ Saaho.
John says that he does not feel any pressure and his friendship with Akshay won’t be affected by the business of their films.
Notably, last year on August 15, John’s “Satyameva Jayate” clashed with Akshay’s “Gold”.
“Make some noise for the desi boys! What else can I say?” John laughed when asked if clashing with Akshay for the second Independence Day weekend in a row would affect their equation, personally or professionally.
“Akshay and I are dear friends. In fact, a day before yesterday we messaged each other, and there is absolutely no problem. We are just releasing two films on the same day. There is a lot of space and the audience is getting to choose from the best. I can say that film is really good,” he added.
