If you were waiting to watch the Akshay Kumar starrer Mission Mangal with a lot of anticipation, here is good news for you. Buzz has it that the makers of the multi-starrer may prepone the release date of the film.

The movie, which began its principal photography in November 2018, was set to arrive on Indian Independence Day (15th August), but the latest we hear that it will now hit the marquee on 9th August.

“The makers of Mission Mangal are thinking of preponing the film and looking forward to release the film on August 9, 2019, instead. Since there are three releases on Independence Day – John Abraham‘s Batla House, Mission Mangal and Prabhas’ multilingual Saaho – and none of them has budged as of now, the makers are planning to prepone by a week. They plan to make the official announcement shortly,” a source close to the development reveals.

Mission Mangal revolves around scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation, who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, which marked India’s first interplanetary expedition. The film stars Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi in important roles.

Directed by Jagan Shakti, Mission Mangal is produced by Cape of Good Films, Hope Productions and Fox Star Studios.
