Radhika Apte to play homemaker-cum-spy in Mrs. Undercover
The film will be released directly on ZEE5 later this year
Radhika Apte is set to headline ZEE5’s upcoming spy-comedy film Mrs. Undercover. Written and directed by Anushree Mehta, the film also stars Sumeet Vyas, Rajesh Sharma and Saheb Chatterjee in pivotal roles.
Mrs. Undercover is a story of a simple Indian homemaker Durga (Radhika) who is actually a special undercover agent called back on the job after 10 years. However, in the past decade, she has forgotten all about being an undercover agent as she dedicated all her time to being ‘just’ a housewife, taking care of her mother-in-law, father-in-law, son and demanding patriarchal husband.
While Sumeet plays the antagonist, Rajesh will essay the role of the head of the Special Force, who recruits Durga. Talking about the spy-comedy genre, writer and debutant director Anushree Mehta said, “We make spy films and we make comedy films. Mrs. Undercover marks the beginning of making spy comedies. With the film, I want to celebrate the amazing quality of multitasking that is imbibed in every woman. This film is a story of such a multi-tasker housewife who also happens to be a fun, entertaining and action-packed undercover spy.”
The film will be released on ZEE5 later this year. It is produced by Sunil Shah of B4U Motion Pictures, Indoo Ki Jawani’s director Abir Sengupta and Varun Bajaj of Knight Sky Movies.
