Mission Mangal's poster is already here and has created quite a stir creating curiosity among cinephiles about the plot and the characters played by the powerfull cast that includes Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi among others.
Although it is quite obvious that Akshay is the torch bearer of a team that leads India to become the fourth country to successfully complete a Mars mission but not much was revealed about the story line.
Now a report By Mumbai Mirror quoted a source, "The premise is based on true events, but the team has taken some creative liberties for cinematic purposes. The mission was successful because of the teamwork, and every character has their moment of glory in the screenplay. It is the story of an underdog team standing tall against all odds.”
Talking about Akshay's role and that of other stars, he said "Akshay will essay the role of a scientist, his co-stars- Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha and Taapsee Pannu, will play characters that head various aspects of the operation. Akshay’s character puts the team together and drives them to achieve the goals. It’s more of him being a mentor to the young team,”
