Khufiya starring Tabu, Ali Fazal and Wamiqa Gabbi is one of the most highly anticipated Vishal Bhardwaj’s films. The makers had released a video earlier that already left the fans excited. The film which is set to premiere on Netflix has finally got a release date. Not only that, the makers released the trailer on Monday, giving a glimpse into the world of Khufiya.
The two minute, 30 seconds trailer aptly sums up why Khufiya is a tale of love, loyalty, revenge and betrayal. From the glimpse, it’s about a R&AW agent who is on a mission to nab an individual, who is leaking confidential information from the department.
With Tabu being the investigator of the case and Ali Fazal being her prime suspect, the story promises multiple layers of mystery behind the prime conspirator. Whether the identity of the supposed ‘traitor’ is as easy to find out, that’s for the viewers to determine.

In a statement, Vishal Bhardwaj who has helmed the film, based on real-life events shared, “I have always been very fascinated with the world of espionage and am truly excited to explore this genre with Khufiya. This film also gave me a chance to reunite with Tabu, and work for the very first time with two very talented actors- Ali Fazal and Wamiqa Gabbi. It also marks my partnership with Netflix and I cannot wait to share this thrilling story with viewers across 190 countries.”
“I am so happy to be once again working with my favorite director Vishal Bhardwaj as we reunite for the third time after Haider and Maqbool. Vishal’s unique vision and storytelling have always intrigued me, and Khufiya is no exception. Super excited for Netflix audiences to watch Khufiya on 5 October,” added Tabu.

The powerhouse duo of Vishal & Tabu team up again and are supported by the very talented Ali Fazal, Wamiqa Gabbi, and Ashish Vidyarthi and the phenomenal soundtrack of Khufiya also created by the director. The film packs a strong punch with its breathtaking narrative. It is a story of love and betrayal intertwined with the deep sense of patriotism which makes it a very special Netflix film.”
