It’s going to be almost a year since we haven’t seen our favourite Alia Bhatt on screen. The gorgeous actress was last seen in Karan Johar’s production ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’, which released in the beginning of 2017. But the good news is that our wait is about to get over soon as Alia’s next film ‘Raazi’ is all set to debut cinemas after 100 days.
The makers of the much-awaited film released a new still featuring Alia Bhatt alongside her leading man in the movie, Vicky Kaushal. Both actors can be seen sharing a loving gaze in the image. Dharma Productions, the banner bankrolling the project along with Junglee Pictures, tweeted, “100 DAYS TO RAAZI and for the journey & mystery to unravel!”
Noted filmmaker Meghna Gulzar, who is helming the project, wrote on her Twitter account, “Counting down. #Raazi.”
For Alia, who has been part of many commercially successful films, ‘Raazi’ will be her first period film. Inspired by true events, the film is set during the 1971 Indo-Pak war and features the ‘Student Of The Year’ (2012) actress in a completely never-seen-before avatar. She plays the central character of Sehmat in the movie, while Vicky Kaushal is essaying the role of the Pakistani officer who is married to Sehmat.
Jointly produced by Karan Johar’s Dharma Productions and Junglee Pictures, ‘Raazi’ is a cinematic adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s popular book Calling Sehmat.
The film will release theatrically on May 11, 2018, across the country.
