On her birthday, Ekta Kapoor had launched the poster of her new web series M.O.M- Mission over Mars. Ever since the poster of the web series was launched, there was a controversy sparked over the use of space rocket on the poster.
The poster features a Russian Soyuz launch vehicle along with the Indian flag whereas ISRO’s Mars Orbiter Mission (MOM) which is also called Mangalyaan was launched aboard a Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) rocket C25.
When the netizens noticed the gaffe, they reacted to it by criticizing the makers for the lack of research into the subject before launching the poster.
Replying to a media report on netizens’ reactions to the latest poster of her upcoming web series, Ekta Kapoor said “Cannot use the ISRO rocket !!! Legal boundaries! Check the statement and disclaimer below the post”!
