• Akshay Kumar marks 2019 Independence Day with 'Mission Mangal'

    14th November 2018

    Looks like Bollywood's Khiladi Akshay Kumar is not ready to let go the Independence Day as he eyes yet another 15th August 2019 release with his upcoming film titled 'Mission Mangal'.

    The 51-year-old took the news to Twitter that read "A powerful true story of ordinary people with extraordinary dreams, on an unheard of mission to achieve the impossible. #MissionMangal will come alive on 15th August, 2019. See you at the theaters. @foxstarhindi."

    Earlier Akshay even shared a black and white pic with the entire star cast of the team including Sonakshi Sinha, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sharman Joshi, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen along with Akki in the centre. That's quite a wide ensemble cast coming with female power to be precise.

    The 'Gold' actor shared the pic and captioned it, "Proud and excited to bring the story of India's Mars Mission, #MissionMangal to you. Coincidentally the mission was launched on this very date, 5th Nov. 2013. Meet the team and do share your best wishes for our shubh mangal journey. Shoot begins soon."

    Mission Mangal will be helmed by Jagan Shakti and co-produced by 'PadMan' director R. Balki. The point of talking remains the same as John Abraham and Akshay Kumar films will clash once again after 'Gold' vs 'Satyameva Jayate' as John's 'Batla House' is also slated for a 2019 Independence Day release.
