Mission Majnu, the first major release from Netflix India in 2023, releases today, January 20, on the global streaming service. The spy thriller, starring Sidharth Malhotra and Rashmika Mandanna in the lead roles, is expected to release on Netflix at 12:30pm, and will be available to stream or download and watch through the Netflix app on compatible devices, or through a web browser.

The upcoming film also stars Parmeet Sethi in the role of real-life Indian spymaster Rameshwar Nath Kao, who served as the first chief of RAW from its founding in 1968 to 1977. Other cast members include Ashwath Bhatt, Kumud Mishra, and Zakir Hussain in supporting roles, while the film is directed by Shantanu Bagchi, who makes his directorial debut with Mission Majnu.
