Recently an announcement was made regarding Akshay Kumar collaborating with R Balki in Mission Mangal.
The film is based on India’s 2013 space programme of Mangalyaan mission and will be co-produced by Fox Star Studios and Cape Of Good Films.
And now we got to know that Mission Mangal will hit screens on Independence Day, August 15, 2019. One more interesting thing that will happen is that, Akshay Kumar’s film will once again clash with John Abraham’s Batla House which is also scheduled to release on 15th August, 2019.
The same thing had happened this year too. Akshay Kumar’s Gold and John Abraham’s Satyameva Jayate released on 15th August, 2018. Gold didn’t fare well in terms of Box Office whereas Satyameva Jayate came out with flying colours.
Mission Mangal will focus on the stories of the women responsible for the success of Mangalyaan mission. It is being helmed by Jagan Shakti.
Batla House, on the other hand, will revolved around Sanjeev Kumar Yadav – the one who spearheaded the Batla House encounter. It is a story about the encounter that happened in Delhi between police officials and a terrorist group, Indian Mujahideen.
