Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal has turned out to be a universal blockbuster at the ticket windows. Till now, the film has grossed Rs 194.23 crore (Rs 164.61 crore) in India and Rs 32 crore at the overseas box office. Mission Mangal currently stands with the grand total of Rs Rs 226.23 crore. Mission Mangal is expected to enter the Rs 250 crore club by the end of its second week at the box office.
Akshay earlier spilt the beans on how Mission Mangal happened and said, It just happened, he sketched out the story to me as I was leaving for a shoot of Kesari. I was bowled over but wondered how he would make it. We don’t make science films and this one was about a space mission. But I liked it enough to tell him, “We’ll make it.” He began writing it with (R) Balki sir. Then, Vidya (Balan), Sonakshi (Sinha), Taapsee (Pannu) and others came on board and we wrapped up the film in 32 days. When a film finishes without issues and negativity, it’s good karma."
Mission Mangal is based on the 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. It jointly-partnered by Pad Man helmer R Balki and is directed by Jagan Shakti. The film also stars Nithya Menen, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi in key roles. Anyway, have you liked the film?
