Sidharth Malhotra, Rashmika Mandanna to headline spy thriller Mission Majnu

Sidharth Malhotra will headline an upcoming thriller titled Mission Majnu, based on the story of ‘India's most ambitious covert operation’ against Pakistan. The actor will essay a RAW agent in the 1970s who leads the mission. The film marks the Bollywood debut of Rashmika Mandanna, who will essay the female lead. 

Mission Majnu is written by Parveez Shaikh, Aseem Arrora and Sumit Batheja. The thriller will be directed by ad filmmaker Shantanu Bagchi and co-produced by RSVP and Guilty By Association. It will go on floors in February 2021. 

Mission Majnu is a patriotic tale inspired by true events that celebrates the hard work of RAW agents who go out of their way to protect the citizens of our country,” Sidharth shared. “It is a privilege 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. I am looking forward to sharing this special film with everyone.”

Thrilled about her Bollywood debut, Rashmika said, “I have been fortunate to receive so much love from audiences across languages. As an actor it is always the story of the film that I connect with, and the language of the film is never a barrier for me. I am grateful to the makers for offering me Mission Majnu, which is written beautifully, and I am super excited to be part of a team that has so much passion. We are all working together to make it even more amazing.”
