Akshay Kumar starrer Mission Mangal is all set to hit the theatres on August 15. It is to be noted that the Mission Mangal will clash with Prabhas’ Saaho and John Abraham’s Batla House on the box-office.
Earlier there were reports that the release date of Mission Mangal was shifted from August 15 to August 9 with an aim to avoid a box-office clash with Batla House and Saaho. However, putting all the rumours to the bed, the makers of the Mission Mangal have made it very clear that the film will release on the same day it was earlier scheduled.
Noted film critic and Trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter handle to announce the news. He wrote, “OFFICIAL… No change in release date… #MissionMangal to release on 15 Aug 2019… Stars Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi… Directed by Jagan Shakti. #IndependenceDay”
