Akshay Kumar says Mission Mangal will celebrate the power of women scientists

Akshay Kumar’s next, Mission Mangal, which stars Vidya Balan and Taapsee Pannu among others, is an inspiring story of a bunch of women scientists scaling great heights with Mars Orbiter Mission. The actor expresses his admiration for an incredible story of ‘jugaad’.

The film’s teaser released on Tuesday to a tremendous response, and Akshay feels it’s time such stories are told. “Few people know NASA sent a satellite to Mars for close to Rs 6,000 crore, and ISRO did it in only Rs 450 crore. Just see the difference… A little common sense, and we saved a lot of money. Can you believe this story has not been told yet? I want to tell it, that’s why I came on board,” he adds.
