Fans got very eager to watch the film after watching the interesting trailers. Akshay Kumar plays the role of a senior scientist in the film based on Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) scientists who worked on the space mission named Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM).
According to Box Office India, Mission Mangal continued with steady collections of Rs 3.50 crore nett on the second Tuesday and took the second week's total upto Rs 42 crore nett plus in five days and the film's total record to Rs 167 crore nett.
