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.

The entry into the Rs 100-crore club also marks Kumar's third film to have reached the Rs 100-crore landmark within a few days of release, after 2.0 and Kesari.

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. The film released alongside Batla House, and has been proving to be a tough competitor for John Abraham's cop drama at the box office.
