Alia Bhatt To Play Kashmiri Spy In Meghna Gulzar’s Thriller ‘Raazi’


Mumbai: Alia Bhatt is all set to play a Kashmiri girl in Meghna Gulzar’s upcoming movie ‘Raazi’.

She started as the diva in ‘ Student of the Year,’ then went on to be the rural Bihari girl in ‘ Udta Punjab’ and a girl from Uttar Pradesh in her last release ‘ Badrinath Ki Dulhania.’

It is a thrilling saga of a disguised undercover agent who dedicated herself in the service of her nation during the 1971 Indo-Pak war.

Filmmaker Karan Johar took to Twitter to confirm the news and also shared some details of her role.

It’s an adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s Calling Sehmat, a novel inspired by the almost-unbelievable real-life story of the woman who Sikka named Sehmat, to protect her identity.

Vicky Kaushal, who sprang up on the scene with Neeraj Ghaywan’s subliminal Masaan, will be essaying the role of the Pakistani officer.

The film will be shot in Punjab and Kashmir in a start-to-finish schedule from July, followed by a small schedule in Mumbai.
