Akshay, who plays scientist Rakesh Dhawan in the film, shared the photo and wrote: "Be it making a home or launching a successful space mission, women know it all!

A big salute to the Mars brigade!" while Taapsee wrote: "Every dream, no matter how big or small, requires skill, knowledge and most importantly the courage to envision it. Presenting to you the brigade that stood tall in the face of all obstacles with grit and passion and gave life to #MissionMangal!"
Sharing the picture, Kirti said that it has been an honour for her to play the role of one of the scientists, who made "Mission Mangal" possible. "It has been an honour playing the role of one of the scientists working on the great #MissonMangal. Presenting to you, the Mars brigade," she wrote while Sonakshi's caption read: "A dream led by women. Just another feather in the cap of the only Mars Mission of India - Mission Mangal."
