Team Mission Mangal Inches Towards Victory in ‘Shaabaashiyaan’
A day before the release of Jagan Shakti-directorial Mission Mangal, the makers have dropped a song from the film, Shaabaashiyaan. Mission Mangal narrates the story of India’s Mars Orbiter Mission, and the song shows us the hurdles and challenges that the team faced to send the orbiter to Mars.
The video starts with Akshay Kumar convincing some people that India should try and send the orbiter to Mars. He forms a team comprising Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and others to make this mission possible.
Watch the song here:
They face hurdles and challenges but finally the Mars Mission is successful.
A few days back, a new trailer was also dropped. While the first was celebratory, this version takes a look at the hurdles the team behind ISRO’s 2013 Mars Orbiter Mission – on which the story is based – had to overcome to achieve their dream of reaching the Red Planet.
The trailer opens with Akshay announcing to higher authorities that the team’s initial attempts have failed and offers a look at the moments of frustration and doubt that they experience. Vidya Balan’s character seems to be relentless in her optimism and stands as a voice of reason when Akshay, who appears to be leading the team, veers close to giving up.
