Based on author Harinder Sikka's bestseller titled Calling Sehmat, the film will trace the journey of the real-life character who lives on the edge in her married life and in an alien country only to feed information to the Indian Army in order to protect her country. At least that is my wish because Raazi as a film is very different. Sikka, in an earlier interview to The Hindu, has said, "I am yet to fathom how Sehmat's father, a rich businessman in Kashmir then, could push his daughter to do such a unsafe thing".

The film has been directed by Meghna Gulzar, who has previous directed films such as Filhaal (2002) and Talvar (2015) among others and is also the daughter of lyricist Gulzar and veteran actor Rakhee. The trailer of the film has become quite a hit, thanks to the stupendous acting by all the actors, especially Alia and we can't wait for the movie to hit the silver screen.

Ever since the trailer of "Raazi" is out, the Twitterati has been going gaga over it. Apart from Alia and Vicky, it is the ensemble cast of Rajit Kapur (Alia's father), Shishir Sharma (Vicky's father), Soni Razdan and Jaideep Ahlawat which add stars to Meghna's film.

Alia Bhatt and Meghna Gulzar clicked during the shoot of Raazi in Kashmir. "It's the first time I am doing a period film and is based on the true story as well, so I am very excited for it and I hope the audience will like it".
