The recently released trailer for film Raazi shows a gripping performance by Alia Bhatt, who has previously proven her mettle with films like Highway and Udta Punjab.
Playing the role of Sehmat – a Kashmiri girl who gets married to a Pakistani army officer, essayed by Vicky Kaushal – Alia is shown as a spy who has infiltrated the enemy lines and is clearly working against her husband. The trailer gives a sneak peek to the many sides of Sehmat; as a docile daughter, perfect wife and a brave spy.
Helmed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions, the spy-romantic flick is based on ‘Calling Sehmat’, a best-selling book by Harinder Sikka. Reportedly, Raazi also stars Alia’s real life mother Soni Razdan.
The film is set to hit the theatres on May 11.
