Vishal Bhardwaj is set to helm a new spy thriller for streaming giant Netflix. Titled Khufiya, the film is inspired by true events and is based on an espionage novel Escape to Nowhere by Amar Bhushan. Tabu, Ali Fazal, Wamiqa Gabbi, and Ashish Vidyarthi will be seen in major roles.

Produced by Vishal Bhardwaj's banner, Khufiya is a story about Krishna Mehra, a RAW operative who is assigned to track down the mole selling India's defense secrets. All along, grappling with her dual identity of a spy and a lover.

Bhardwaj said, "With Khufiya, my attempt is to create an edgy espionage film that contrasts the slow burn of intelligence and surveillance work with one's deep-rooted emotional conflicts."

Tabu said, "Khufiya is a one-of-a-kind project, extremely close to my heart and I am excited to be a part of this gripping spy thriller. As always, it's a delight working with VB (Vishal Bhardwaj) again, and feels like a homecoming!"

Pratiksha Rao, Director, Films and Licensing, Netflix India added: "His films are known to brilliantly showcase inherent conflicts between different characters and their worlds through moving stories, and we can't wait for our members to experience this through the incredible story of Khufiya."
