Ekta Kapoor, very recently launched the poster of her new upcoming web series, M.O.M – Mission Over Mars, inspired by the story of the women behind India’s successful Mangalyaan mission, on her birthday. But, more than this news, another news pointing the major error in the poster shared by Ekta Kapoor for M.O.M- Mission Over Mars is catching the trend as the poster featured the wrong space rocket.
However, this appears to be a major error as the poster features the wrong space rocket. The show will be starring Sakshi Tanwar, Mona Singh, Nidhi Singh and Palomi Ghosh, on its part while, the story is set to revolve around four women scientists who were involved in India’s Mars Orbiter Mission that was launched in 2013.
The poster of the show, which is streamed on the ALT Balaji platform, featured, what seems to be a Russian Soyuz launch vehicle, superimposed with the Indian flag.
ISRO’s Mars Orbiter Mission or Mangalayaan, on the other hand, was actually launched abroad on a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle rocket C25.
Twitter Ads info and Eagle-eyed fans pretty quickly noticed the mistake and highlighted the same on Twitter.
One of the users wrote, “The fact that the poster uses the wrong rocket is already a big flag,” while another tweeted, “Could it be that they didn’t have a single expert as a consultant for this series?”
Ekta Kapoor’s on June 6 tweeted on her decision that she is making the show since two-and-half-years ago as she chanced upon the “amazing story about women in Indian science.”
As per her tweet, the show is on “women who sent the mission on mars – partly fictional keeping in mind the sacrosanct nature of ISRO.”
She further mentioned, “We are proud to present thus part fiction Part real story that is based on the humongous achievement of all the women behind Indian science. This Show is our tribute to our unsung heroes.”
ALT Balaji on this issue presented a statement, saying, “Our upcoming show is a fictional adaptation of the real life heroes at ISRO who worked on Mangalyaan and set a major milestone putting India firmly on the global map. However, as a strategic call taken by multiple parties, we have gone down the fiction route for this show. Additionally, we are legally bound not to use actual names or images of either the people, objects or agencies involved. Keeping in mind our contractual obligations, publicity material of the show was designed.”
