It is going to be a tough task for the moviegoers to choose among Mission Mangal, Saaho, and Batla House as all the three films are scheduled to hit the screens on this Independence Day i.e August 15.
With Prabhas and Shraddha Kapoor starrer Saaho and Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal creating buzz and John Abraham's Batla House inspired by a real encounter intriguing fans, it seems that the battle between the trio would be an intense one.
Mission Mangal, which is based on an incredible true story of India's mission to Mars, also stars Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Nithya Menon and Sharman Joshi in pivotal roles. Helmed by Jagan Shakti, the film is co-produced by Padman director R Balki.
Action thriller Saaho has a lot to offer in terms of spine-chilling action sequences of Baahubali actor Prabhas. The film marks his debut in Bollywood. Helmed by Sujeeth and produced by UV Creations, Saaho features Mahesh Manjrekar, Jackie Shroff, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Murli Sharma, and Chunky Panday in never-seen-before avatars.
Inspired by the real Batla House encounter that took place almost a decade ago on September 19, 2008, Batla House will see John portraying Sanjeev Kumar Yadav, who spearheaded the encounter. Helmed by Nikhil Advani, the film is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, and John Abraham among others.
