After making her first Bollywood appearance in the Amitabh Bachchan-starrer Good Bye, which was a theatrical release, Rashmika Mandana is all set for her next Bollywood action-romantic film, titled Mission Majnu, in which she is paired with Sidharth Malhotra.
The film will release on an OTT platform and not in theatres. At the launch of the film's first song, Rabba Jaanda, in Bandra, Mumbai, the protagonists were asked how they feel about Mission Manju getting an OTT release.
Rashmika said, "Filmmaking and the love that we get from the audience is what we live for. So, in a way, it does not matter whether a film is released on an OTT platform or in theatres. The platform doesn't matter as long as the audience gets access to the film, watches it, and shows their love and support for it."
When it was pointed out that Rashmika is one a prominent actresses in the South Indian film industry and is hugely popular among the mass audience, Siddharth said, "It is great that instead of bringing the masses to the theatre, this time, she is going to the homes of the mass audience through n OTT platform, to entertain them with a film (Mission Majnu)."
Echoing the same sentiment, Rashmika added, "We all are entertainers at the end of the day. So, as long as we can connect with the audience, it's great."
The song Rabba Janda is composed by Tanishk Bagchi, written by Shabbir Ahmed and sung by Jubin Nautiyal.
Directed by Shantanu Bagchi, and produced by Ronnie Screwvala, Amar Butala and Garima Mehta, Mission Majnu also stars Parmeet Sethi, Sharib Hashmi, Mir Sarwar and Kumud Mishra. It is slated to release on Netflix on January 20, 2023.
