After releasing the teaser of Raazi which sees Alia in a burkha talking to somebody on the phone in secrecy asking about someone, the makers had released three posters of Alia Bhatt introducing her as a perfect daughter, a perfect wife and a spy. In the first poster Rajit Kapoor is kissing her on the forehead.
And after all this, the wait finally got over and the trailer of Alia Bhatt’s Raazi came out and brought with it the complicated relationship between India and Pakistan back into limelight. The film Raazi, which is jointly produced by Junglee Pictures and Dharma Productions has Shishir Sharma and Jaideep Ahlawat as Alia’s co-star. The film which is scheduled to be released on May 11 is set in 1971, and is based on a true story, Raazi, an adaptation of Harinder S Sikka’s book, which was titled Calling Sehmat, exactly 10 years after Harinder Sikka's book Calling Sehmat was published, Meghna Gulzar's film Raazi, is scheduled for release.
The trailer starts off with an Indian father played by Rajit Kapoor finds a Pakistani suitor for his daughter Sehmat played by Alia Bhatt. He then asks her to live in Pakistan and work as an Indian spy. She is soon married off to a Pakistani man named Iqbal Syed essayed by Vicky Kaushal as a police officer and starts to live across the border. Essayed by Vicky Kaushal, Iqbal is loyal to his Pakistani roots as well which calls for more tension between the two.
The trailer also shows the rigorous training that Sehmat goes through to become an undercover spy before getting married. The trailer makes us witness some action packed visuals and Alia’s expertise in her craft as an actor which we have seen many times before also. Raazi is definitely one more brave attempt by Alia after showing her acting power and skills in Udta Punjab, Highway, Dear Zindagi. Meghana Gulzar is back after the movie Talvar, telling the story of Sehmat. We as Alia’s fans are sure that our female ‘hero’ will again prove her forte and make us thrilled and amazed like every time.
