'Mission Majnu' trailer: Sidharth Malhotra is spy on a mission
The trailer of Sidharth Malhotra-Rashmika Mandanna starrer Mission Majnu has arrived! Notably, this is Mandanna's second Hindi release after Vikas Bahl's Goodbye, which was released on October 7, 2022. The action film has witnessed multiple delays in the past and will finally arrive on Netflix on January 20. It has been directed by Shantanu Bagchi. Here's a trailer breakdown.
Why does this story matter?
- Interestingly, when Mission Majnu was first announced, it was marketed as Rashmika Mandanna's Bollywood debut.
- However, delays rained, and Goodbye ended up being released before Mission Majnu, while the latter also decided to skip its theatrical outing.
- Moreover, since Malhotra's last film Thank God was an average grosser at the box office and met a tepid response, he's seeking critical acclaim through Mission Majnu.
Trailer is loaded with action and chase sequences
The 2:28-minute-long trailer focuses on Amandeep Ajitpal Singh (Malhotra), an Indian spy who lives in Pakistan as an ordinary tailor while working dedicatedly toward locating Pakistan's nuclear facility. While on this mission, he ends up marrying a blind girl (Mandanna). Chase sequences, high-octane action, and elaborate fights on train roofs—expect all of it from Mission Majnu. The trailer also has some shades of Raazi.

'Mission Majnu' marks many firsts for Mandanna
Mandanna earlier spoke about her experience of working in Mission Majnu. She said, "It's a now or never kinda character. Mission Majnu has given me so many firsts—from exploring the northern part of India, its culture, language, the people, the industry, and working with such a wonderful team and co-actors. I couldn't have asked for more. I love you Team Mission Majnu."
