Mission Mangal has done wonders at the box office however Akshay and his team never expected that the film will do the number that it has at the ticket windows. "When we were making it, writing it, lots of people had told us how much business it’ll do, ‘It’ll go till 60-70 crore.’ Because this genre is not explored, nobody knows. It was a big risk. I had no idea where this film would go, how would people react to science. It was a risk worth taking. Children are watching the film, dragging their parents who are then realizing even they didn’t know what kind of things go on to send a satellite on Mars," Akshay Kumar said during a media interaction.
