Akshay Kumar will be reuniting with Pad Man director R. Balki for Mission Mangal. The film that is based on India’s 2013 space programme of Mangalyaan mission is one of the most anticipated films of the year as it is India’s first space film. The film will be headlined by top stars like Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha along with Nithya Menon, Kirti Kulhari. Sharman Joshi will also be a part of the film. While the film was been scheduled for August 15 release, it seems like the makers are planning to prepone the film to avoid the box office clash with three other films.
As per some reports from tabloids, “The makers of Mission Mangal are thinking of preponing the film and looking forward to release the film on August 9, 2019 instead. Since there are two other scheduled releases on Independence Day besides Mission Mangal – John Abraham‘s Batla House, and Prabhas’ multilingual Saaho – and none of them have budged as of now, the makers are planning to prepone it by a week. They plan to make the official announcement shortly.”
India’s first space film, Mission Mangal, which is in collaboration with R Balki and jointly produced by Fox Star Studios and Cape Of Good Films. & The film is directed by Jagan Shakti.
