Mission Mangal is a Indian Hindi-language science fiction drama film directed by Jagan Shakti and jointly produced by Akshay Kumar, R. Balki, Aruna Bhatia, and Anil Naidu. The film stars an ensemble cast of Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi, H. G. Dattatreya and Sonakshi Sinha and is loosely based on the story of scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission, which marked India&Isquos first interplanetary expedition.

Principal photography for the film began in November 2018, and it is scheduled to be theatrically released in India on 15 August 2019. In November 2018, a copyright infringement lawsuit was filed against the makers of the film by the filmmaker Radha Bharadwaj. The music of the film is composed by Amit Trivedi while lyrics are by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

On 5 November 2018, to coincide with 5 November 2013, the day the Mars mission was launched, Mission Mangal was announced. Principal photography for the film began later in mid-November. In early February, Pannu finished her schedule of shooting. Shakthi initially had Mohanlal and Sridevi in mind for the roles played by Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan. He mentioned the story idea to Kumar while working as an associate director to R. Balki in Kumar&Isquos Pad Man.
