Speaking about the film, Malhotra said: "I'm quite excited about Mission Majnu since it will be my first time playing a spy. It shows India's most thrilling covert mission, which transformed the politics between India and its neighbouring 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 said: "Mission Majnu is the story of India's growing prowess and place in the global standing of nations as a superpower, 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."
Directed by Shantanu Bagchi also starring Kumud Mishra, Parmeet Sethi, Sharib Hashmi, Mir Sarwar and Zakir Hussain. The film, produced by RSVP and GBA, will release on Netflix.
