Akshay Kumar celebrates World Emoji Day with a Mission Mangal emoji
Emojis have really become an integral part of how we express ourselves over messages or on social media. And, to mark the relevance of these icons, World Emoji Day is celebrated annually on July 17 from the last five years, a year after the word was added to the Oxford Dictionary. Celebrating the occasion, actor Akshay Kumar today announced that there is now an emoji for his upcoming film Mission Mangal.
The emoji features Mars with Indian Flag. The actor also expressed his gratitude for Twitter India for making it possible.
Mission Mangal is a real-life story of scientists at the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), who contributed to Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM), which made Mars more accessible to explore. Releasing in August, the film features Vidya Balan, Taapsee Pannu, Kirti Kulhari, Sharman Joshi, Sonakshi Sinha alongside Akshay Kumar.
