Even before the release of the film and the audience’s verdict, Bollywood had already showered praise at the Alia Bhatt starrer after watching the film at the special screening organised for the industry people. Even now, after the film has released and crossed the Rs 100 crore mark, the word of praise and accolades is refusing to stop.
Recently, actress Kangana Ranaut, who was spotted in the city after watching ‘Raazi’, was asked her opinion about the film. Kangana reportedly commended the performance of Alia in the film. She also went on to hail the young actress as the undisputed queen of Bollywood. Kangana reportedly appreciated the fact that a woman director’s work is being greatly celebrated by people.
Alia Bhatt has sufficient star power to drive a film. Vicky Kaushal, who is himself an accomplished actor, is then a cherry on the cake. Raazi will surely do good business over the weekend. Beyond that, word-of-mouth promotion will come into play.
Raazi features Alia Bhatt in the role of Kashmiri girl Sehmat who is married off to Pakistani army officer to spy for her nation. Vicky Kaushal plays her reel husband and real life mother Soni Razdan plays Alia’s reel mom for the big screen adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel ‘Calling Sehmat’.
After Kangana, it was Shraddha Kapoor who went all out and about to congratulate Alia’s performance in the movie. Shraddha apparently sent Alia a bouquet of flowers with a hand-written card which read, ‘Dearest fellow fish, so happy for your film doing so well. Big congratulations to you! Lots of love, Shraddha.’
‘Raazi’ also stars Jaideep Ahlawat, Shishir Sharma, Rajit Kapoor, Soni Razdan, Arif Zakaria and Amruta Khanvilkar in pivotal roles. The film also marks the return of director Meghna Gulzar, after the tremendous success of 2015 film ‘Talvar’
‘Raazi’ is produced by Vineet Jain, Karan Johar, Hiroo Johar and Apoorva Mehta and co-produced by Priti Shahani.
