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.
