Rakesh Dhawan (Akshay) and Tara Shinde (Vidya) lead a team of scientists who overcome their personal challenges and failures to serve as the brains behind one of the greatest missions in history: The launch of India's first satellite to Mars. The movie, based on a true story of India's mission to Mars, is about ordinary people achieving the extraordinary. Directed by Jagan Shakti, the film is co-produced by 'PadMan' director R Balki.
Mission Mangal has become Akshay Kumar's biggest opener by earning Rs 29.16 crore on day 1 itself. The film even surpassed the opening collection of Akshay's last Independence Day release, Gold.
