He took to Twitter to announce the project, saying that the movie would be based on a biography of the agent. The announcement reads, “An adaptation of the book R.N.

Johar also said that more information would be coming soon. Dharma Productions’ 2018 spy thriller Raazi, starring Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal and Rajit Kapur, was based on Harinder S Sikka’s book “Calling Sehmat”, which was inspired by the story of a woman who married a Pakistani Army officer to provide classified information to India during 1971 Indo-Pak war. The film was among the ten highest-grossing films of 2018. Raazi won the Filmfare Award for the Best Film, while Alia Bhatt received the Filmfare Award for Best Actress. Meghna Gulzar had clinched the Best Director award. 

Karan Johar has a lined up 2020 with several movies expected to be released on the silver screen. Vicky Kaushal and Bhumi Pednekar starrer Bhoot: Part One The Haunted Ship would release on February 21. It will be the first part of a horror franchise. The production house will also release the biopic of first female Indian Air Force pilot Gunjan Saxena, which will see Janhvi Kapoor in the lead role.

Dharma Productions will also jointly produce the next part of Rohit Shetty’s cop universe, Sooryavanshi, starring Akshay Kumar. The movie will release on March 27. Brahmastra, with Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, and Ranbir Kapoor, will be a contemporary tale surrounded by Indian mythology. The movie is likely to be released in May.
