Meghna Gulzar’s upcoming film ‘Raazi’ starring Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal has garnered the curiosity of most of the celebrities and cine-goers.
‘Raazi’ that is originally an adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel ‘Calling Sehmat’, brings out a brilliant ensemble cast. It is another directorial venture of Gulzar and Raakhee’s only daughter, Meghna. The trailer for the film that was just released took the internet by storm. The film also stars well-known actors like Jaideep Ahlawat, Amruta Khanvilkar, Soni Razdan, Rajit Kapoor and Shishir Sharma.
The audiences are anticipating the release of the film, as Sikka’s novel has a gripping storyline that is based on a true story. The novel is about an Indian spy who married a Pakistani man during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971.
The team of the film released a poster that showcases Alia Bhatt in three separate characters- a daughter, a wife and a spy. Alia who has mounted to the top of her career delivers a breathtaking performance as the trailer progresses. She is previously known for portraying some brilliant characters in films like ‘Highway’, ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Dear Zindagi’, further raising the bar for herself. This film will certainly bring out a distinct avatar of the talented actress.
As the trailer looks quite promising, Meghna Gulzar too carries a lot of pressure as her previous works won the hearts of the critics and audiences alike. After the critically acclaimed ‘Talvar,’ that is based on the 2008 Noida double murder case, Meghna decided to flag off the screen adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s book. The film was renamed from ‘Sehmat’ to ‘Raazi’ after Karan Johar joined the project with him as the producer.
It will be rather interesting to see the film taking its course with such eminent personalities venturing out into a full-fledged collaboration. The film is scheduled to release on 11 May 2018.
