With just 100 days left for Alia Bhatt starrer Raazi to hit the theatres, the makers released a new still from the film. The film is already making the right noise and topping the trends now and again. In the still, Alia looks elegant in a white saree and a bun while Vicky Kaushal looks smart in a suit and sports a mustache. Director Meghna Gulzar also tweeted a pic with the lead actors.
The film is based on Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehma and is directed by Meghna Gulzar who returned to the silver screen after three years. Alia will be seen as a Kashmiri girl who gets married to an army officer played by Vicky Kaushal. Talking about her role in Raazi, Alia had told DNA, "I'm going through one of the most extensive preparations for this film. The last time I did something like this, was for Udta Punjab. But that also was only with the dialect. Raazi is about dialect, body language and things like driving a big heavy jeep. Shifting those gears is a different ball game for me altogether. I am learning Urdu so it's also going to help me in the longer run. I'm playing with the language for over a month now and every day, I am sitting with it for hours. I know most of my dialogues by heart right now because I have been reading them over and over again. I am having a lot of fun with it."
Vicky Kaushal is best known for his role in Neerah Ghaywan’s Masaan. He will also be seen playing an integral part in Ranbir Kapoor’s Sanjay Dutt biopic. Alia, on the other hand, is shooting for Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy and the pre-production for Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra opposite Ranbir Kapoor is also underway.
