What is Mukhbir - The Story of a Spy about?
Set against the backdrop of the Indo-Pakistani War of 1965, the trailer of the series hints at a story where the nation’s leaders are in the midst of a struggle as they are unable to get intel from the tumultuous war zone. As they start to get more and more desperate, one of them suggests the name of a unique ‘asset’- a spy who is sent on a covert undercover mission to the enemy country. The series is an adaptation of the novel, Mission to Kashmir: An Intelligent Agent in Pakistan, written by Maloy Dhar.
