Akshay Kumar is all set for the release of his upcoming film Mission Mangal on August 15, Independence Day. The makers of the film dropped the second trailer of the film just yesterday and it emanated a great response from the viewers. It is a highly anticipated film and Akshay Kumar will be seen portraying the role of scientist Rakesh Dhawan. Ahead of the much-awaited film’s release, Akshay Kumar opens up about his tryst with science and reveals that his son Aarav is his science teacher.
In a recent interview with Mumbai Mirror, the Gold actor mentioned that the younger generation has an entirely different and much greater exposure than what he did. On being asked if he talks about science and technology with his son Aarav, he said, “We don’t discuss, he tells me things. It’s a different learning experience. My son is like my science teacher.” He further went on to recall his own experiments with science and shares how he damaged a radio that his father gifted him thinking it was a scientific breakthrough. Akshay Kumar said, “He paid Rs 175 for a shiny red transistor. I was five years old and having a radio was a big thing at the time. I would listen to songs on it. A few days later, I showed him a black circular object that I had discovered. It would stick when I threw it at the cupboard. He said, ‘That’s a magnet. Where did you get it?’ I told him that I had taken it out of the radio.”
Mission Mangal is a true story of a scientist, Rakesh Dhawan, played by Akshay Kumar and Tara Shinde played by Vidya Balan who lead a motley team of scientists who overcome their personal challenges and failures to serve as the brains behind one of the greatest mission in history: the launch of India’s first satellite to Mars. The film is all set to release in the theatres on August 15 and will compete with John Abraham starrer Batla House at the box- office.
