Mission Mangal first song out: Akshay and team go, ‘Dil Mein Mars Hai’
Ahead of lift-off, the makers of Mission Mangal unveil the first song from the film
The first song from Mission Mangal, titled Dil Mein Mars Hai, is out. The inspirational anthem is composed by Amit Trivedi and performed by Benny Dayal and Vibha Saraf. The lyrics are by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Talking about the idea behind the track, director Jagan Shakti said, “The song is more like an anthem that plays out at different junctures in the film. It almost binds the story together. Each scientist working on Mission Mangal has their own idea for this ambitious venture, but faces roadblocks while executing them.”
In an earlier interview with us, composer Amit Trivedi had shared that the film has a modest number of songs and is ‘score-heavy’.
Mission Mangal stars Akshay Kumar, Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Sonakshi Sinha, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen and Sharman Joshi. The film is based on the 2014 Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) conducted by a team of scientists at Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). With the mission, India became the first Asian nation to reach Martian orbit and the first nation in the world to do so in its maiden attempt.
Mission Mangal is scheduled for release on August 15.
