An exceptionally talented team has come together to tell a story that from day one stirred me from within. Some journeys give you a different perspective on everything u thought u knew.

The actor stated that his character Prabhat was "unlike any that I have played before". Prabhat leads a highly important mission to capture the most wanted criminal in India without resorting to violence. It is the first time in Kapoor’s career that he is playing a spy.
Director Gupta, researched and spoke with the people involved with the real-life mission to figure out their physical and emotional journey.
“Arjun plays a no-nonsense Intelligence Bereau (IB) officer in the film who is also an ordinary guy at heart like the rest of us. Since the film is inspired by a true-life story, we wanted to keep the look as real as possible. We discussed it for a month as the emphasis is more on the character’s state of mind rather than his physical attributes,” he said.
India’s Most Wanted, which has also been shot in Nepal, is due to be released on 24 May 2019. The thriller is produced by Fox Star Studios and Gupta.
