Alia Bhatt is all set to return to action with Meghna Gulzar’s next directorial ‘Raazi’, produced by Junglee Pictures and Dharma Productions. The movie is based on Harinder Sikka’s novel, ‘Calling Sehmat’.
The movie revolves around a Kashmiri girl, played by Alia, married to an army officer across the border, Vicky Kaushal, who provides the Indian Intelligence with invaluable information during the 1971 Indo-Pak war and saves the lives of scores of our soldiers. The film will be shot in Punjab and Kashmir in a start-to-finish schedule from July, followed by a small portion in Mumbai.
“I am trying to do something in a new space, recreating India and Pakistan of the ’70s on sets and real locations. A lot of research has gone into getting the period and dialect right. There are some action pieces too. Its work in progress with workshops and reading sessions,” Meghna stated.
