Nikhil Advani’s Next Film on India’s Successful Mars Mission Mangalyaan



Real life stories have always inspired film makers. Filmmaker Nikkhil Advani is all set to bring to screen one such inspiring story of Dr. K Radhakrishnan, former Chairman of ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) and the man behind India’s most successful Mars mission called ‘Mangalyaan’.

Nikkhil Advani saw a photograph of Prime Minister Narendra Modi with the scientists behind the Mars mission. The more he read about it, the more he was fascinated by the fact that we had sent the Mars Orbiter – the cheapest and the fastest version successfully, and that too, in the very first attempt. Later, when he read Dr Radhakrishnan’s book, ‘My Odyssey’, he knew he had to make this film.

Dr. K Radhakrishnan, the Padma Bhushan awardee scientist was equally thrilled when Nikkhil approached him with this idea.

The biopic will also show how Dr Radhakrishnan went ahead with this mission despite the possibility of failures of GSLV (Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle) satellites and that did not discourage him from taking this Mars mission. The audiences will also get to see a couple of controversies that shook ISRO during his tenure.
