You know you have a winner in your hand when you cast Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi and Kirti Kulhari in a film together. The trailer of 'Mission Mangal' shows women taking charge as Akshay Kumar plays a mentor of sorts to a bunch of very driven scientists. 

Director Jagan Shakti and producer R Balki present the inspiring story of a group of ISRO scientists who were a part of India's first mission to Mars. Incidentally, the mission was propelled by a women's team which makes the story even more inspiring. 

All the actors play scientists who were involved in the Mars Orbiter Mission, which marked India's first interplanetary expedition.



The film also stars Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub and marks the Bollywood debut of Malayalam actress Nithya Menen. Akshay Kumar has also co-produced the film. 

The film is set to release on August 15 and will clash at the box office with John Abraham 's 'Batla House' .
