When we quizzed Sidharth and Rashmika about Mission Majnu, the actor told ETimes, that technically she shot for it first. To which, Rashmika agreed and added, “I think this (Mission Majnu) was my comfort, this is my home, my first Hindi production. It was you know that first when you start, you’re so nervous at the same time, you don’t know what is going on or anything about it.”
Sidharth, who was sitting next to Rashmika, gave a smirk at her response and immediately took a dig at her ‘nervous’ statement. “She was not at all nervous. She was telling the director, the producer, telling me, why are you shooting here, why are you shooting in South,” Sidharth quipped and Rashmika couldn’t stopping nudging him for pulling her leg.
He then went on to praise Rashmika as a co-star. He said that she was very easy-going and did not come with a preconceived notion about a particular scene which eventually gave them a scope to try something new and new director Shantanu Bagchi also benefited from it.
Sidharth and Rashmika also spoke at length about essaying real life characters in Mission Majnu. While Sidharth talked about how he gets the parts of officers right since he comes from an Army background, Rashmika also drew parallels between her roles in Mission Majnu and Sita Ramam and how the two characters were similar but also very different.
The espionage-thriller Mission Majnu is set to drop on Netflix on January 20.
