Alia Bhatt Surprised Us With Her Pictures From The Movie Raazi On Her Birthday
Happy birthday Alia Bhatt! The actress turned 25 today and took to twitter to release two stills from her upcoming movie ‘Raazi’, an espionage thriller, which is slated for release on 11 May this year. She wrote, “Movies or in this case MY movies aren’t just something I do for a living… it’s kinda the reason I feel like I’m alive ☺ SO…”
In one of the pictures Alia is seen standing in an outdoor setting, staring off into the distance. She’s clad in a blue burqa, with barely-there makeup, and minimal jewelry. Earlier, she was quoted about the film and her role, “I think in Raazi audience will see me in completely different avatar at least that is my wish because Raazi as a film is very different. It’s the first time I am doing a period film and it is based on true story as well, so I am very excited for it and I hope audience will like it.” In the second picture, it looks as though she is having a confrontation with a man whose face isn’t clearly visible. She is seen wearing a maroon jacket with a blue t-shirt underneath.
Raazi is based on Harinder Sikka’s novel Calling Sehmat, which is about a Kashmiri woman, Sehmat, who marries a Pakistani officer to pass intelligence details to the Indian army during the 1971 Indo-Pakistani war.
Directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Karan Johar and Vineet Jain, the trailer for Raazi is set to be released on 9th April, as revealed by Bhatt in a tweet. Vicky Kaushal (who plays the role of the Pakistani officer and Sehmat’s husband) said of Bhatt, “Getting a chance to work with Alia Bhatt, inarguably one the finest actresses in our industry at the moment, is a big deal for me. I am really very excited to be a part of the film.”
