Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal has crossed the coveted Rs 200 crore-mark and in doing so became the 52-year-old actor's first film to make the double century at the box office, tweeted trade analyst Taran Adasrh. The Jagan Shakti-directed film, which also features Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari and Nithya Menen, is based on the story of Indian Space Research Organisation scientists, who made India's first inter-planetary programme Mars Orbiter Mission a success. Taran Adarsh shared the updated box office report card of the film and wrote, "Mission Mangal crosses Rs 200 crore... Akshay Kumar's first double century... Total India business so far is Rs 200.16 crore."

Here are box office highlights of Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal:
Mission Mangal released to mixed reviews on Independence Day and its fantastic run at the ticket window continued despite the releases of Saaho and Chhichhore, both of which performed reasonably well at the box office.
Things may change for Mission Mangal after the release of Ayushmann Khurrana's Dream Girl today. Dream Girl is Ayushmann's first release after his big National Award win and the film's quirky promotional content has also added to the cine-goers' interests.
Meanwhile, Akshay Kumar is super busy these days as after Mission Mangal he's looking forward to the release of Housefull 4 and Good News later this year. He also has Sooryavanshi, Bachchan Pandey, Laxmmi Bomb and Prithviraj in the pipeline.
