Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan start shooting for ‘Mission Mangal’, view pics
Amidst the ongoing plagiarism row, R Balki’s next production ‘Mission Mangal‘ has gone on floors. Yesterday after Taapsee Pannu teased her fans and followers with a glimpse of her look from the film, pictures of Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan from the sets of the film also started surfacing on social media.
Directed by Jagan Shakti, ‘Mission Mangal’ stars an ensemble cast of Kriti Kulhari, Sonakshi Sinha, Sharman Joshi alongwith Akshay and Vidya. In the on-the-sets pictures that have emerged, Akshay can be seen wearing a blue shirt and beige pants, whereas Vidya Balan is seen wearing a saree.
Interestingly, Vidya and Akshay will be working together after almost a decade. They were last seen together in ‘Heyy Babyy’ and ‘Bhool Bhulaiya’. Yesterday, sharing her look from the film, Taapsee, captioned her picture as, “Kritika Agarwal, Navigation and Communication Department, reporting on duty”.
The ‘Mission Mangal’ makers are targeting to release their film on Independence Day, 2019.
Recently the film was caught in controversy when US-based filmmaker Radha Bhardawaj, accused the makers of ‘Mission Mangal’ of copyright infringement and plagiarism. Reacting on these allegations, producer R Balki told Mid-Day, “We have taken the core of the story and added fictional characters to make it an interesting screenplay. Only ISRO can claim rights to the core story. I urge Radha to come to my office and read our script. I am certain she will find it refreshing. She hasn’t even read it, so how can she make such claims?”
Stay tuned for more such interesting updates on this film.
