Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal‘s next, Raazi, went on floors recently. It is one of the most awaited films to release in May 2018. Alia will have a complete look makeover in the film and will be playing a Kashmiri girl. Popular Marathi actress, Amruta Khanvilkar, has also been roped in to act with these two in the film. The Nach Baliye 7 winner confirmed the news and told Pinkvilla, “Yes I am a part of Raazi directed by Meghna Gulzar. I have just started shooting with the rest of the crew. It’s my first Dharma (Productions) film. I love Meghna Gulzar’s film making and her style of story telling. In her films, every character, small or big, is beautifully etched. I am so thrilled to be working with her.”
The actress also revealed that she has not started shooting for the film yet but most of us her scenes are with Alia and Vicky. Raazi is an interesting story where Alia plays an Indian spy who gets married to a Pakistani guy, played by Vicky. Alia had spilled details about her role in Raazi and told Mumbai Mirror, “She’s a 20-year-old girl so I have an idea about what she will be like but the film is based in a certain time period so the character needed a different approach. I’ve been working on the dialect which is important to the narrative.”
She also said, “I will be speaking Urdu but there’s a Kashmiri twang to the girl’s diction which I have to perfect. I’m also learning self-defence techniques as I have some action sequences, which is a first for me. I’m watching old movies off a list that Meghna has given me.” Alia and Karan Johar had tweeted announcing the release date of Raazi which is on 11th May, 2018. Alia and Vicky will be seen opposite each other for the first time and it’s one exciting onscreen pairing we’re looking forward to.
