ISRO wishes luck to Akshay, team for Mission Mangal

Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has extended best wishes to Bollywood star Akshay Kumar and his Mission Mangal team.

Mumbai: The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has extended best wishes to Bollywood star Akshay Kumar and his Mission Mangal team after the first trailer of the movie was released recently.

The movie features also Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Nithya Menon, Kirti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi.

The official Twitter handle of the premier space agency, which is gearing up for India’s second mission to the Moon, Chandrayaan-2, on Friday praised the film for its portrayal of ISRO team.

“#MissionMangalTrailer beautifully shows the glimpses of emotions and passion with which #TeamISRO works,” read the tweet.

“As #ISRO prepares for landmark launch of #Chandrayaan2,#TeamISRO wishes @akshaykumar all the best for #MissionMangal and all his future endeavour,” it said in another tweet.

In Mission Mangal, Akshay plays the role of a scientist, who along with fellow colleagues spearheads India’s mission to send a spacecraft to orbit Mars.

The film, directed by Jagan Shakti, is based on real-life scientists, who contributed to India’s first interplanetary expedition, Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), launched by ISRO in 2013.

Responding to ISRO’s tweet, Akshay wished the space agency best of luck for Chandrayaan 2, which was earlier set to lift off on 15 July but was called off due to a “technical snag” in its most powerful rocket. It will be now launched on 22 July. “Thank you so much and wishing best of luck once again to #TeamISRO for #Chandrayaan2,” he wrote in a post.

Mission Mangal, produced by Cape of Good Films, Hope Productions and Fox Star Studio, is scheduled to be released on 15 August.

Mission Mangal is an upcoming Indian Hindi-language science fiction, drama film directed by Jagan Shakti and jointly produced by Akshay Kumar, R Balki, Aruna Bhatia, and Anil Naidu. The film is loosely based on the story of scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, which marked India’s first interplanetary expedition.

Principal photography for the film began in November 2018, and it is scheduled to be theatrically released in India on 15 August 2019. In November 2018, a copyright infringement lawsuit was filed against the makers of the film by the filmmaker Radha Bharadwaj.
