Mission Mangal is inspired by India’s 2013 Mars space programme Mangalyaan. In the teaser, we hear Akshay Kumar voice giving out an order, “This is Rakesh Dhawan. Mission Control initiating command for launch of the rocket to Mars.” Vidya Balan looks busy commanding the controls. We also see glimpses of Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi.

Earlier, Akshay Kumar has taken to Twitter to speak about the film. He shared photos of his message for the audience. “For years, Hollywood has made movies and TV shows such as Star Trek, Star Wars, Gravity, which had inspired a generation of inventors, scientists and explorers. I have always wanted to be part of a movie that will inspire future generations. Mission Mangal is that film”, the actor wrote.
