Mission Mangal is based on India’s “Mars Mission of 2014”. The movie showcases the stories of scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and how they contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), which marked India’s first interplanetary expedition.
Akshay Kumar plays the role of a senior scientist in the movie and the actor is pretty hopeful about the success of his movie.
“Few people know NASA sent a satellite to Mars spending close to Rs. 6000 crore and ISRO did it in only Rs. 450 crore. Just see the difference. A little common sense and we saved a lot of money. Can you believe this story has not been told yet? I wanted to tell it and that’s why I came on board,” he added.
Mission Mangal produced by Cape of Good Films, Hope Productions and Fox Star Studios is set to hit the theater on August, 15.
