As India prepares for its upcoming lunar mission, Chandrayaan 3, prominent actors Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, and Suniel Shetty have taken to social media to express their support and extend congratulations to the scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). Suniel Shetty wished the ISRO team "astronomical" success, while Akshay Kumar urged everyone to "rise" at this crucial moment. Scheduled for Friday at 2:35 pm, the launch will be carried out by the powerful LVM3-M4 rocket as part of India's ongoing endeavor to explore the moon.
Anupam Kher took to the Twitter handle and shared his wishes. He wrote, “India all set for its 3rd mission on the moon. Wishing our scientists at ISRO all the very best for the launch of Chandrayaan 3 . Jhanda ooncha rahe hamara (may our flag fly high). Jai Hind…"
Suniel Shetty shared a picture of Chandrayaan 3 on Twitter and wrote, “Excitement levels reaching the MOON! Sending my virtual cheers to Chandrayaan 3 for its upcoming mission!

Akshay Kumar reacted to his old tweet at the time of Chandrayaan 2 and wrote, “And the time has come to rise! Great luck to all our scientists at @isro for Chandrayaan 3. A billion hearts are praying for you.”
His 2019 tweet read, “There’s no science without experiment...sometimes we succeed, sometimes we learn. Salute to the brilliant minds of @isro, we are proud and confident Chandrayaan 2 will make way for Chandrayaan 3 soon. We will rise again.” Chandrayaan 2 had failed to achieve the desired soft landing on the moon surface.
In 2019, Akshay Kumar starred in the movie "Mission Mangal," a film loosely inspired by the real-life scientists of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) who played a pivotal role in India's historic Mars Orbiter Mission. Portraying the mission director, Akshay led an ensemble cast that included Vidya Balan, Sonakshi Sinha, Taapsee Pannu, Sanjay Kapoor, Nithya Menen, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi, and more. The film showcased the remarkable journey and achievements of the dedicated scientists, highlighting their contributions to India's space exploration endeavors.ALSO READ: Anupam Kher reviews 'OMG2' with a delightful picture ft.
