The teaser of Akshay Kumar-led Mission Mangal dropped on the Internet on Tuesday and it had us hooked immediately. The video showcases the "incredible" story of the launch of India's first satellite to Mars within a duration of merely 45 seconds. The video begins with a visual of a satellite launch followed by scientist Rakesh Dhawan (played by Akshay Kumar's) commanding his teammates for initiating the launch. The teaser also gives us a glimpse of Vidya Balan, who plays the role of the scientist Tara Shinde. Akshay and Vidya lead a team of scientists comprising Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Sharman Joshi, Kriti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and H R Dattatrey, who make blink-and-miss appearances in the teaser. The teaser is replete with several nail biting moments and the visual effects deserve a special mention.
