Sidharth Malhotra to shoot a film in Lucknow again

Actor Sidharth Malhotra will begin shooting for his next film in Lucknow from February 12. The Aiyaary actor will be shooting for his second film in Lucknow after Jabariya Jodi in 2019. Titled Mission Majnu, the film also stars Southern sensation Rashmika Mandanna and is directed by Shantanu Bagchi. The film is based on true events of the 70s on India’s covert operations in Pakistan which was one of the deciding factors of the relationship between the two countries. Sidharth plays a Research and Analysis Wing (RAW) agent in the film who goes to Pakistan to stir things up.
The film marks the Bollywood debut of Rashmika who has established her name in the Tamil and Telugu film industry down South.
With a long 45-day schedule in the city, the film will be shot at the Jahangirabad Palace in Hazratganj, La Martiniere, on the city roads and also in Malihabad. While the team is already in the city and the formal shoot is set to begin on February 6, Sidharth will reach Lucknow four days later.
