The trailer of Mission Mangal, starring Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan, Sharman Joshi, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen, is out. Based on Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) or the Mangalyaan project launched by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) in November 2013 to put a space probe in planet Mars’ orbit, the film is directed by Jagan Shakti.
The lead protagonists of the film are Rakesh Dhawan (Akshay Kumar) and Tara Shinde (Vidya Balan). They lead a team of scientists to complete India’s ambitious mission to Mars. The trailer is focused on Akshay and how he brought together a team of talented scientists.
It shows glimpses of the female scientists portrayed by Taapsee, Sonakshi, Nitya and Vidya, who dispel the stereotype that a scientist can only be a fizzy haired Einstein looking man. They do not succumb to the family pressure and dedicate themselves to their mission while fulfilling their domestic duties. They deal with challenges like time constraints and limited budget with ease and composure.
