Akshay Kumar is gearing up with his next project in Bollywood.
Apart from Akshay Kumar Mission Mangal starring ,Tumhari Sulu movie actor Vidya Balan, Sona of Bollywood Sonakshi Sinha , Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari and Sharman Joshi has finally gone on the floors in Mumbai.
The team member is targeting to release on Independence Day 2019 and it has been written and directed by Jagan Shakti. The movie is being produced by R Balki, with whom Akshay collaborated for PadMan as well. This movie is based on Mangalyaan and the glorious efforts which made it successful. Taapsee recently shared her look from the movie in which she was seen wearing a plain yellow saree, a mangalsutra with pearl earrings.
She revealed that her name is Kritika Agarwal in the film. She wrote, “Kritika Agarwal , Navigation and Communication Department, reporting on duty #MissionMangal #FirstDay #FireTheEngines” Well, we are indeed very curious to know this story but seems like the movie’s ride is not going to be as smooth given that legal trouble ensued even before the movie kickstarted.

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 🙏🏻 @foxstarhindi @sharmanjoshi #KirtiKulhari @taapsee @balanvidya @aslisona @nithyamenen
The movie landed itself in a legal trouble when a US-based filmmaker, Radha Bhardwaj filed a lawsuit against it alleging that the script of the movie is hers and blamed the makers for plagiarism. Her lawyer said, “There are hundreds of ways to tell the story of Mangalyaan, but Radha came up with the angle of focusing on the women engineers working on the mission.”
If the movie indeed is looking for an Independence Day release, it might clash with Kalank which might reportedly take the slot after Brahmastra was shifted to a December 2019 release.
