Kumar essays the role of ISRO scientist Rakesh Dhawan, who along with Balan (portraying Tara Shinde), gets a team of scientists together to send a satellite to Mars. Mission Mangal is a fictional account of ISRO's Mars Orbiter Mission or the Mangalyaan launched in 2013.
R Balki, who has previously worked with Kumar on Padman, has been on board this film as a producer, along with Cape of Good Films, Hope Productions, and Fox Star Studios.
