After a long wait, the first teaser of Sidharth Malhotra and Rashmika Mandanna’s film ‘Mission Majnu’ is here. The action-packed trailer is set around the 1970s India-Pakistan war and shows Sidharth playing the role of a RAW agent.
The teaser starts off by showing some vintage photos and videos of soldiers enjoying their win against Pakistan before the camera pans and shows Sidharth performing some high-octane scenes in the moving train, while some Pakistani military officers talk about the power of Indian intelligence agency RAW and planning to take revenge.
Dressed up in a Pathani kurta pyjama, Sidharth is an Indian raw agent carrying out a secret mission in Pakistan as the country is planning to wage another war against India as revenge. Later, “Hindustan, I can do anything to save India.”
Inspired by the true events, the trailer later shows South actress Rashmika Mandanna as a Pakistani girl, who is married to Sidharth.
