Find out who is Akshay Kumar's science teacher

Directed by Jagan Shakti, the movie will release on August 15 and it will clash with John Abraham's Batla House at the box office.

After getting knocked from his chair Akshay Kumar's reaction was priceless. What followed suit was a burst of laughter from their co-stars Taapsee Pannu, Vidya Balan and Nithya Menen.

In the video which has been shared by Sonakshi, we see that Akshay is sitting besides her, in what seems like an interview. Sonakshi's blow makes him fall right on his back.

I was in the midst of Mission Mangal promotions when Tina called me asking if it was true? The other castmates are seen shouting as they are shocked. It is then when Sonakshi gives a slight nudge to Akshay's chest, making him topple off his chair! It is quite amusing how well executed the plan was, on Akshay and Sonakshi's part, to make all their co-stars shocked! The film also stars Sharman Joshi and Kirti Kulhari in pivotal roles.

Mission Mangal, based on India's Mangalyan journey is about Rakesh Dhawan, played by Akshay Kumar and Tara Shinde played by Vidya Balan who lead a motley team of scientists who overcome their personal challenges and failures to serve the biggest mission. Since the multi-starrer is releasing on this independence Day, the matter was listed on priority in court.
