Sidharth Malhotra's upcoming film, Mission Majnu, is all set for its OTT premiere on 20 January. Directed by Shantanu Bagchi, the film also features Rashmika Mandanna, Parmeet Sethi, and Sharib Hashmi, among others, in pivotal roles. Based on true events from the 1970s, Sidharth plays the role of a spy in the film.
The Quint caught up with the actor and spoke to him about his experience working on a variety of scripts, playing non-fictional characters, being in the public eye, completing ten years in the Indian film industry, his first film, and more.
Talking about his film, Sidharth shared, "Mission Majnu is based on a true incident that happened in India and the politics around it in the 1970s. But, my character is completely fictionalized. So, it's not based on any one spy of India."
"So, we had enough leeway to play around with it. We were just trying to be true to the tonality of the 1970s as to how would a spy get information in those times where we didn't have technology. I play a tailor in the film, I pretend to be a plumber, I pretend to be some other characters in the film, to desperately get that information."Sidharth, added.
