Directed by Jagan Shakti, Mission Mangal has an ensemble cast which includes top names like Akshay Kumar, Taapsee Pannu, Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi and Nithya Menen.
Speaking about how she bagged the role in Mission Mangal, Taapsee Pannu was quoted as saying, "Akshay (Kumar) sir had called me saying that there is a film that he is doing and it has an ensemble cast with five women in it. Vidya Balan was already a part of it. He wanted me to hear one of the parts and he was like, 'I don't know if you will be okay doing an ensemble film. Everyone has a limited part in it but since it's such an important film, I would really like you to be a part of it.' I told him that was not a concern. My only concern is, 'Is my part significant enough even in an ensemble?' I heard the script from Jagan (Shakti, director). I said that I definitely want to do it. Not just because my part is good enough to remember when you walk out of the theatre but it's also an important film to be a part of. I love to be one of the first to do something. This is India's first space film and I definitely wanted to be a part of it. So I said yes."
