PeepingMoon.com was the first one to inform that Mona and Sakshi have been roped in by Ekta for the web series based on real women who played a major role in the Mangalyaan mission. Sources close to the web series informed us that Mona will be playing the role of a scientist. According to sources, the web series will be shot in 500 different sets while the budget of the show remains Rs.35 Cr. MOM will be helmed by Nupur Asthana, known for her work in TV shows Hip Hip Hurray, Hubahu and Mahi Way.
