These days, Hindi cinema is a new fashion to become an agent of the country’s intelligence agency Research and Analysis Research (RAW). After the success of Shershaah, Actor Siddharth Malhotra is all ready to play his character as a RAW agent in his upcoming film Mission Majnu has much more to offer than conventional action sequences. The film features the directorial debut of the filmmaker Shantanu Bagchi and marks South Indian actor Rashmika Mandanna in Bollywood. This is a spy thriller that is inspired by real events. Siddharth took to Instagram to share a photo from the sets of the film and announced that the film will have a theatrical release.

 According to the makers, Mission Majnu is inspired by real events set in the 1970s and follows the story of India's most adventurous mission in the heart of Pakistan that forever changed the relationship between the two nations. In the upcoming film, Siddharth said, "This is a film which is inspired by true events. It's about an important mission that RAW did. It is more of a thriller than action. This is the first time I am playing a spy agent but it is not a James Bond character."

 Mission Majnu a Special Genre of Film

 “Mission Majnu is a patriotic tale that is inspired by true events that celebrate the hard work of RAW agents. They go out of their way to protect the citizens of our country. It is an advantage to tell the story of our brave agents, and I am eager to revisit a mission that forever changed the relationship between India and Pakistan. Siddharth said that I am looking forward to sharing this special film with everyone.”

Producer Ronnie Screwvala had also opened up about Mission Majnu. “There are thousands of heroes who work behind the scenes to safeguard the interest of our country from other terror units and rogue nations. Their work often goes unnoticed and Mission Majnu is an attempt to bring their sacrifices and efforts to the forefront. Mission Majnu is a thrilling tale about one of the most daring and bold operations in the history of RAW,” he said.

Siddharth said “Thank God for being a complete family film and Mission Majnu is being a spy thriller. These genres of films have a massive audience in our country. I will do my best to make them in the best possible way,” he added.

Mission Majnu will go on floors in February this year in Lucknow.
