The first film to be made un­der this part­ner­ship will be In­dia’s first space film, Mis­sion Man­gal, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with film-maker R Balki, and will be di­rected by Ja­gan Shakti. The shoot for the same will start mid Novem­ber.

Com­ment­ing on this as­so­ci­a­tion, Akshay says, “I am de­lighted to find a new cre­ative part­ner in Fox Star Stu­dios and am look­ing for­ward to cre­at­ing a col­lab­o­ra­tion that will de­liver a mean­ing­ful and en­ter­tain­ing cin­e­matic ex­pe­ri­ence. With our com­bined en­er­gies, we hope to cre­ate con­tent that not only ex­cites but also em­pow­ers.” Adding to that, Vi­jay Singh, chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Fox Star Stu­dios, says, “With Jolly LLB 2, Fox Star Stu­dios and Akshay Ku­mar de­liv­ered one of the big­gest hits of 2017. It gives me great plea­sure to take our as­so­ci­a­tion with Akshay fur­ther with this three-film part­ner­ship with Cape Of Good Films. Akshay is one of the most suc­cess­ful ac­tors, who has a fan­tas­tic understanding of scripts and chang­ing au­di­ence pref­er­ences. We are look­ing for­ward to an un­prece­dented col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Na­tional Award win­ning ac­tor.”

It’s a part­ner­ship we have en­vis­aged for a long time and are happy to see it fruc­tify to­day. Akshay has played an im­mensely valu­able role in cre­at­ing and fronting sto­ries that have not only en­thralled the au­di­ence, but have also in­spired change, and we hope to bol­ster that with this part­ner­ship. We look for­ward to cre­at­ing pow­er­ful and com­pelling sto­ries to­gether.”
