Though Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menon starrer Mission Mangal received mix reviews, it was applauded by the audience.
And now the team of Mission Mangal got another reason to celebrate.
Taapsee and Akshay got to know that Mission Mangal has inspired a young child to become a space scientist.
Yes, it is true.
A Twitter user by the name of Aparajitha, tweeted to the cast of the movie- Vidya Balan, Akshay Kumar and Taapsee Pannu, among others to thank them for inspiring her son to become a space scientist.
“Mission Mangal is a movie which inspired my 7 year old son, who wants to be a space scientist after seeing the movie & has now came out with a design of his new project Mangalyaan 3. @akshaykumar @vidhya_balan @isro @taapsee @sonakshisinha.”
To this Akshay replied:
“This is amazing! Glad to know about this future scientist and learn about his Mission Mangal. Wishing him all the very best.”
Taapsee Pannu replied:
“This is beyond words! Not a bigger success than this.”
The movie loosely follows the scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, India’s first interplanetary expedition.
While ISRO is all set to launch Chandrayaan 2 in a few days, the official Instagram handle of ISRO responded on Mission Mangal’s teaser.
“Ek Desh. Ek Sapna. India to be a space superpower. Few Days to go for achieving new Milestone! #Chandrayaan2”
