Mission Majnu Trailer: Sidharth Malhotra’s Netflix Movie Will Unveil Teaser December 16th
The release date of the trailer for Mission Majnu directed by Sidharth Malhotra has been announced. Netflix revealed on Thursday that the trailer for its latest spy thriller will be released tomorrow, December 16, ahead of its January 20 premiere. This would mark Netflix’s first Indian original for the new year, alongside the actor’s first collaboration with the platform. Inspired by real events, Mission Majnu explores a thrilling secret mission, “which transformed politics between India and its neighboring country in the 1970s”. Shantanu Bagchi makes his directorial debut with Mission Majnu.
For co-star Rashmika Mandanna (Sita Ramam), this is her Bollywood debut, which is brimming with “seriousness, heart, drama and haunting music”. In what is described as a “compelling story of patriotism,” Malhotra plays a RAW agent where one wrong move “can make or break the mission.” Produced by Ronnie Screwvala (Swades) under his RSVP banner, Mission Majnu also stars Kumud Mishra (Jogi), Parmeet Sethi (Roustom), Sharib Hashmi (Dhaakad), Mir Sarwar (Bajrangi Bhaijaan) and Zakir Hussain (not the tabla legend).
“I am very excited about Mission Majnu as it will be my first time playing a spy. It shows India’s most exciting secret mission, which has transformed the politics between India and its neighboring country in the 1970s,” Malhotra said in a prepared statement. “With Netflix on board, I’m confident this incredible tale will resonate with people around the world.” While principal photography began in February 2021, the film has suffered multiple delays, likely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.Mission Majnu was once supposed to debut in theaters in May/June, then skipped the release schedule until it was sold to Netflix.
While Mission Majnu is Netflix’s first known Indian Original for 2023, the streaming service has a few Originals to shut down this year. We have the Malayalam film directed by Kunnchako Boban, Ariyippu, which was acquired by Netflix in October. The film premieres Friday, December 16 on Netflix and follows a struggling family’s dreams of leaving the country for a better life, amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Netflix ends December on a lighter note with Vir Das: Landing, where the titular comedian returns for his fourth Netflix stand-up special, discussing his childhood, “the perils of outrage, and finding his feet in the world.”
Mission Majnu is released on January 20, 2023 on Netflix. The Mission Majnu trailer was released on Friday, December 16.
