The trailer of Raazi has become an instant hit with glimpses of another power-packed performance from Alia Bhatt. The much-anticipated spy thriller is creating a buzz all around and promises to be an interesting watch. There’s a lot more to the movie than Alia and a strong lineup of actors. Did you know the following facts about Raazi?
Directed by Meghna Gulzar, Raazi depicts a real-life story. It is based on the novel ‘Calling Sehmat’, written by ex-naval officer Harinder Sikka. This heartwarming tale brings to light the valour of Sehmat Khan, an Indian girl who marries a Pakistani army officer and becomes a spy to serve her country. The storyline is fresh and fascinating.
For all those who didn’t know yet, Alia Bhatt has a British citizenship. She acquired this from her mother (Soni Razdan) who was born in Birmingham, England. As India doesn’t permit dual citizenship, Alia remains a British citizen. We’re glad that the Mumbai-born powerhouse of talent is our desisuperstar.
Vicky Kaushal is an engineer-turned-actor who has successfully followed his Bollywood dream. He had bagged a job as an electronics and telecommunications engineer, but his interest in acting made Vicky decline the offer. We wish him all the best for a long innings in the world of cinema.
Both Alia Bhatt and Soni Razdan have made a mark in Bollywood with their acting prowess. It’s the first time that this mother-daughter duo will appear together on the big screen. They had teamed up for a television commercial prior to this. Their fans are waiting to watch them create magic together in Raazi.
Raazi is special for Amruta Khanvilkar too as she features in a prominent role. A leading Marathi film actress, Amruta has also appeared in Hindi television shows and movies. She had won Nach Baliye, a dance reality show, along with her actor husband Himmanshoo Malhotra. We wish Amruta great success in Bollywood.
