The film has also been declared tax-free in the state of Maharashtra. "#MissionMangal declared tax-free [SGST] in #Maharashtra," Adarsh tweeted.
Mission Mangal did well despite facing stiff competition from John Abraham's Batla House, which has also done well, earning over Rs 88.04 crore in 12 days of its release. The weekend, however, may not be a cakewalk for both Akshay and John as superhit film Baahubali star Prabhas' Saaho is scheduled to release on Friday.
Mission Mangal revolves around India's mission to Mars that was powered by a women-dominated team of scientists at ISRO. The movie shows how the mission braved one trouble to another from finances, weather and even personal challenges of the scientists to achieve this momentous feat. Apart from Akshay Kumar, Mission Mangal's stellar star cast includes Vidya Balan, Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menen, Sharman Joshi, Sanjay Kapoor, and Mohammad Zeeshan Ayyub.
