The Bollywood spy flick gets more ambitious this year, with a couple of top superstars signing up for roles in the genre. Akshay Kumar, Kangana Ranaut, and Sidharth Malhotra will give the Bollywood spy thriller a new-age twist on a big screen, even as Manoj Bajpayee continues with his escapades in the OTT space with The Family Man 2 being the most awaited film.

While the Hollywood hangover is still evident on Hindi espionage thrillers when it comes to forming and execution, the new-age Bollywood spy banks heavily on pop patriotism for his mojo when it comes to content.

Tewari directorial also stars Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta Bhupathi, and Huma Qureshi. It is scheduled to release on April 2.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me.
