Khufiya marks the digital debut of celebrated filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj. It is a spy thriller inspired by true events and based on Amar Bhushan's espionage novel Escape to Nowhere. The upcoming film is centred around Krishna Mehra, an R&AW operative who is assigned to track down the mole selling India’s defence secrets. All along, she is also grappling with her dual identity as a spy and a lover, according to Netflix's press release.
Talking about the film, Bhardwaj told PTI, "With Khufiya, my attempt is to create an edgy espionage film that contrasts the slow burn of intelligence & surveillance work with one’s deep-rooted emotional conflicts." While Tabu was quoted as saying to the news agency, "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," she said.
