Mission Mangal is all set to release on 15th August and the team is all out in its promotional events. On social media one can find the pranks of Akshay, Sonakshi and Vidya Balan. It was during one of such events in Delhi when Akshay Kumar thought of playing the fun quotient on one of the reporters.
In the video clip, he can be seen taking the privilege of returning a phone call on behalf of a reporter. It was during Kirti’s reply on her experiences in the film that the phone started ringing. She had forgotten to put her phone in silent mode while the press meet was going on. Taapsee is seen provoking him “uttha lo, uttha lo, sir.” Much to everyone’s amusement Akshay Kumar decides to bring some lighter moments to the incident. In a video which has gone viral on social media, he instead of ignoring the ringer, Akshay Kumar can be seen picking up the phone kept on a table surrounded by microphones. He can be clearly heard addressing the caller, by name Krishna and informing him that he is at a press conference
“Namashkar… hum log abhi ek press conference mein hain… main Akshay Kumar bol raha hu… abhi aapko wapas call karenge.”
Akshay’s co-stars of Mission Mangal Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari, Taapsee Pannu and Nithya Menen couldn’t stop themselves from rolling out in laughing. See yourself the ROFL clip
In one video clip shared on Sonakshi’s account, one can see Sona’s new makeup man – Akshay Kumar, captioning it “Sona’s makeup artist”. He can be seen poking her nose with a makeup brush.
It is not only Akshay Kumar who is having all the fun. Vidya Balan also shared a video snippet which shows them playing Antakshari en route their destination for the promotions. She captioned it, “Antariksh se Antakshari tak ka safar.” Taapsee and others canm be heard singing Maai ni maai (song from Hum Aapke Hain Koun!) and Akshay was heard singing an oldie, 1970s hit song, Geet gaata hoon main.
Other stars have also kept the fun quotient high on their social media accounts by sharing such anecdotes.
Another trailer of Mission Mangal was also released today. The movie is based on the story of scientists at ISRO who contributed to the Mars Orbiter Mission. It was India’s first interplanetary expedition. The film is directed by Jagan Shakti and also has stars Sharman Joshi and Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub in focal roles.
