The trend of exploring realistic content has created an upsurge in Bollywood, as many filmmakers vest into the phenomenon of crafting cinema that carries a great weight. As reported earlier, Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan are reuniting after 11 years for R Balki's space film Mangalyaan. It was also reported that R Balki is on a hunt for two more actresses to feature in the film.

Informing about the developments, a source close to the project revealed to a leading entertainment portal, "After Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan and Nimrat Kaur were signed for the film, Balki sir has been busy finalizing the rest of the cast. Now, with Sonakshi Sinha and Taapsee Pannu joining the film, Balki is looking at going on floors with the project in January next year."


The untitled film is touted to be India's first ever space mission film to be bankrolled by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures and R Balki's Hope Productions.


Helmed by Jagan Shakti who has directed films like Pad Man, Holiday and Akira to his credit, the film will be co produced by Akshay Kumar.
