Following an inspirational tweet about the movie Mission Mangal, actor Akshay Kumar has now released the teaser poster for the upcoming movie. The poster of the movie does not reveal much but has got us excited for the movie. The movie will largely focus on India’s milestone space achievement- the Mangalyaan Mars Mission.
Mission Mangal is one of the few space age movies coming out of Bollywood and fans have high expectations from the movie. This is mainly because the movie has a promising cast with actors such as Akshay Kumar, Tapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Nithya Menon, Kriti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi.
In the poster that was shared by Akshay Kumar, all cast members can be seen with a red and blue background. Possibly, the colour scheme reflects on the surface of Mars- red and Earth- blue, which is a nice touch and goes well with the theme of the movie. The added rockets and space effects have got us rather excited for what the film will actually hold.
In the movie, Akshay Kumar will play the lead role of the scientist who was the brains behind the actual mission. Though there was a whole team behind the success of the mission, the movie has consolidated it into just one main scientist and his team of workers.
Apart from Akshay Kumar’s role in the movie, there aren’t many details on what the other actors will be doing. However, we’re excited to see them in the movie. Mission Mangal is slated to release on August 15, thereby strengthening our nationalistic spirit and is directed by Jagan Shakti.
