The ensemble cast of Mission Mangal also includes names such as Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi and Nithya Menen. The plot of the film revolves around India’s Mars Orbiter Mission, mainly led by a team of women scientists.
Talking about the film, Akshay recently said, ''Our aim to make the film was to make science very simple. Even I didn't know about this (the science behind it) but the story was so systematic, I understood it," he added. In the film, the actor shares screen space with five female actors and emphasised that the young actors of today should do more multiple hero projects, which they aren't being a part of anymore. I tried to find out why but everyone wants to do a solo hero subject. The earlier generation, my generation used to do that. If you see (now), there's no three hero subject.''
