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.”

Akshay Kumar, the producer of the film said that the girls are the heroes here and he has taken a backseat.

"The script demands them to be ahead. They are the real heroes. I am supposed to be behind them even though I am producing it. I am very happy to see these five girls, who are very big in their own way, are not bothered that there are five of them coming together," Akshay said in a group interview.

"The attitude of 'why should I do it' isn't there. I don't think five heroes will come together. I don't think so. But when I approached them they were very happy with their roles and were ready to do the film," he added. 

‘Mission Mangal’ is a space film and is expected to release on Independence Day 2019.
