Khiladi Akshay Kumar is known for patriotic and socially relevant movies which includes Padman, Tiolet: Ek Prem Katha and Gold among others. And which day is better to release such informative movie than a national holiday i.e., Independance Day?

Soon after the release of this year's best sports-drama movie Gold, Khiladi Kumar proudly announced his upcoming project, 'Mission Mangal' for releasing on the coming Independence Day. However, reports are that Akshay's Mission Mangal has landed in legal trouble.
As per our sources, a US-based filmmaker Radha Bharadwaj has filed a lawsuit to halt production of the film as she claims it borrows from her script. Radha has further alleged that producer Atul Kasbekar shared her screenplay with cast member Vidya Balan without notifying her.
Earlier, Padman actor Akshay took it to his official Twitter for posting about his upcoming project. In its caption, Akki wrote: “A powerful true story of ordinary people with extraordinary dreams, on an unheard of mission to achieve the impossible. #MissionMangal will come alive on 15th August, 2019. See you at the theaters.”
