Making it an eventful end to 2022, Netflix is set to ring in the New Year, 2023, with Sidharth Malhotra-Rashmika Mandanna’s Mission Majnu, and on a patriotic high. The spy-thriller mystery will stream exclusively on Netflix from January 20.

Inspired by true events, Mission Majnu transports you to the past to uncover one of India’s most important missions. The film takes the viewer through the emotions of loyalty, love, sacrifices and betrayal with an action-packed screenplay where one wrong move can make or break the mission. Directed by Shantanu Bagchi and produced by Ronnie Screwvala Productions and Guilty By Association, Mission Majnu also stars Kumud Mishra, Parmeet Sethi, Sharib Hashmi, Mir Sarwar and Zakir Hussain.

Speaking about the film, Sidharth says, “I am quite excited, since it will be the first time I am playing a spy. It shows India’s most thrilling covert mission, which transformed the politics between India and its neighboring nation in the 1970s. With Netflix on board, I am confident that this incredible narrative will resonate with people all around the world.”

Producer Ronnie Screwvala spoke about the film and his collaboration with Netflix. He said, “Mission Majnu is the story of India’s growing prowess and place in the global standing of nations as a super-power, both as the fastest- growing nation in the world and the biggest democracy, and stories like these show how we laid the cornerstone for our standing. It’s a story best suited for the audiences on Netflix with their global reach. Sidharth and Rashmika make this story come to life and RSVP is really proud to present this.”

Producers Amar Butala and Garima Mehta add in a joint statement, “Our journey has been an exhilarating one. This is a compelling story of the men who serve our nation across borders. Even though they don’t wear the coveted uniform, their fortitude and sacrifice make for a powerful story. Our endeavor is to create stories that stay with the audiences for a long time. We are happy to be working with Netflix, which allows audiences globally to find diverse stories from India and we are hoping that our film is loved across the globe.”

The film is written by Parveez Shaikh, Aseem Arrora and Sumit Batheja.
