Mission Mangal is currently running successfully at the box-office and the credit goes equally to the whole cast of the film. The highly women oriented film did face some flak when the poster came out as it was dominated mostly by Akshay Kumar while the five other women were given lesser space on it.
Earlier, Sonakshi Sinha had reacted to the controversy and said, “Jo bikta hai, woh bikta hai.” Vidya Balan, who plays one of the most pivotal characters in the film was also questioned on the poster to which she gracefully responded, “This mission had equal contribution from men and women. It’s great that a woman’s contribution is at least being acknowledged. It’s not fair to say that this film ‘needs’ an Akshay Kumar. It’s great that an Akshay Kumar has done this film, despite knowing that women have equal space in it. Because normally, male superstars are not even willing to share equal space. But Akshay has not only acted in the film but produced it too.”
