The film is said to be based on the arrest of terrorist Yasin Bhatkal, who was a key conspirator in three terror acts carried out in different cities in India. Kapoor plays the role of an intelligence officer Prabhat Kapoor, who rounds up a team of spies on a mission to find the criminal mastermind. Despite the time constraint and lack of funding from the government, the team completes its mission.
"Eagerly waiting to begin the shoot," says Kiara Advani, who also celebrates her birthday today.
Amazon Prime India also revealed that Narappa, Sarpatta Parambarai and Malik were watched by its subscribers in over 3,200 towns and cities in India as well as in over 150 countries and territories globally.
Aadhaar was gearing up for a release earlier this year when it was abruptly 'pulled out' a week before its opening, said director Suman Ghosh.
