Producer Ronnie Screwvala also spoke about the film and his collaboration with Netflix. He said, “Mission Majnu is the story of India’s growing prowess and place in the global standing of nations as a superpower, both as the fastest growing nation in the world and the biggest democracy - and stories like these show how we laid the cornerstone for our standing. It’s a story best suited for the audiences on Netflix with their global reach. Sidharth Malhotra and Rashmika Mandana make this story come to life and RSVP is really proud to present this.”
