Bollywood actress Tabu and filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj had given us two of the most top-notch films Maqbool and Haydar. Now in an exciting update, the actor-filmmaker duo is all set to come together for a spy thriller, Khufiya. Based on the true events the story is inspired by a spying novel ‘Escape to Nowhere’ by Amar Bhushan.
The film will be produced by Vishal Bhardwaj Films and directed by Vishal Bhardwaj. Khufiya will show a story of Krishna Mehra, an R&AW operative who is hired to track down the mole selling India’s defence secrets – all along, grappling with her dual identity of a spy and a lover. The film is all set to star Tabu, Ali Fazal, Wamiqa Gabbi and Ashish Vidyarthi in important roles.
Vishal Bhardwaj seems quite excited about the projects sharing his excitement he said, “With Khufiya, my attempt is to create an edgy espionage film that contrasts the slow burn of intelligence and surveillance work with one’s deep-rooted emotional conflicts.”
Says Tabu, “Khufiya is a one of a kind project, extremely close to my heart and I am excited to be a part of this gripping spy thriller. As always, it’s a delight working with VB (Vishal Bhardwaj) again, and feels like homecoming!”
Tabu who is collaborating with Netflix and Vishal Bhardwaj yet once again, “Khufiya is a one of a kind project, extremely close to my heart, and I am excited to be a part of this gripping spy thriller. As always, it’s a delight working with VB (Vishal Bhardwaj) again, and feels like homecoming!”
