Now, Khiladi Kumar is going to explore the world of scientific research with his character in Mission Mangal. Yes, you have heard it right. Akshay Kumar is playing role of a scientist in his upcoming movie.

However, a source has informed us now that Akshay has a vital role in the movie too which has been inspired from ISRO scientist. It is said, “Akshay’s character puts the team together and drives them to achieve the goal. It’s more of him being a mentor to the young team.”

The mission was successful because of the teamwork, and every character has their moment of glory in the screenplay. It is the story of an underdog team standing tall against all odds.”
