Meghna Gulzar – the filmmaker, who impressed us with the gripping crime drama Talvar, is set to bring yet another intriguing film titled Raazi which stars Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in lead roles and is produced by Karan Johar and Junglee Pictures.
Today, both Karan and Meghna revealed the first look posters of Raazi using the hashtag ‘Shades of Raazi’. In these photographs, we see two variations to Alia’s character in the film – one as a dutiful daughter, another as a wife.

KJo tweeted: “Strong, emotional, fiercely independent. The kind of daughter everyone wants but I already have!” and “A daughter wife and a lot more. Wait until you discover all #ShadesOfRaazi.”
Scheduled for 11th May release, Raazi is apparently an adaptation of Harinder Sikka’s novel, Calling Sehmat.
The espionage thriller revolves around a Kashmiri girl (Alia Bhatt), 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.
Reportedly, the film has been shot in Punjab and Kashmir, followed by a small portion in Mumbai. Whilst shooting for the film, Meghna told a leading media outlet:
“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.”
The trailer of Raazi releases tomorrow on 10th April 2018!
