After releasing the teaser of the film, Kumar had shared a picture of the women scientists. "I get inspired when a film like this happens in front of me. What a brilliant story this is, inspired by a real incident," says Akshay, who plays a senior scientist in the film based on the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) scientist who worked on the Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).
Given the theme of courage, the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne will host the official Australian premiere of the film on Independence Day at HOYTS Chadstone in Melbourne which will incidentally be the first festival premiere for the film. The festival screening is expected to have a solid turnout of Indians looking for a special way to celebrate their I-day in a foreign land.
