The film is inspired by real events set in the 1970s and is the story of India’s most courageous mission in the heart of Pakistan that forever changed the relationship between the two nations.
Written by Parveez Shaikh, Aseem Arrora, and Sumit Batheja, the thriller stars Sidharth Malhotra as a RAW agent who leads the mission. This film marks two important firsts – it will be south superstar Rashmika Mandanna’s highly-anticipated Bollywood debut and the directorial debut of award-winning ad filmmaker, Shantanu Bagchi.
