Mission Mangal marks the directorial debut of Jagan Shakti. Talking about his struggling days, the filmmaker recent said, "I really slogged hard in the industry. Irrespective of many chances of me being able to direct and not able to direct stuff, I waited for the right script. I think hard work really pays some day. Coming to Mumbai from Bengaluru, where I had a comfortable life, and travelling in local trains. Survival of the fittest happens every day in Mumbai. Mumbai told me many times 'to go back' but I prevailed."
Before Mission Mangal, Jagan worked as an assistant director in films such as Padman, Holiday, Dear Zindagi, Ki & Ka and Shamitabh.
Mission Mangal also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen and Sharman Joshi. The film, which opened on August 15, recreates the event around the Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) of November 2013. Anyway, have you liked the film?
