Last year we told you how Meghna Gulzar will be directing her next titled CALLING SEHMAT, again based on a real life incident. The film is based on a book by same name of author Harinder Sikka.
Meghna has found her protagonist in Alia Bhatt and is about to start shooting for the film from next month. Produced by Junglee Pictures and Dharma Productions the film is titled RAAZI AND STARS Alia in a role of a Kashmiri girl married to an army officer across the border.
Talking about the film director Meghna was quoted saying in a report in Mumbai Mirror as, “I am trying to do something in a new space, recreating India and Pakistan of the 1970s 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,” informs Meghna.
Explaining the unusual title the director said, “It’s only when you agree to something that you eventually end up doing it and live with the consequences. ‘Raazi’ is a synonym of ‘sehmat’ which also means agreeable.”
Vicky Kaushal of MASAAN fame will be playing Alia’s husband in this film. On being signed for the film Vicky said, “I'm honored to be getting an opportunity to work with Meghna Gulzar and also looking forward to working with Alia, who I feel is one of the finest actresses we have at the moment. Actually, the entire team is so talented and especially to be working with Dharma Productions is rewarding for any young actor. I'll soon wrap up Raju Sir's Film and will begin Shooting for RAAZI.”
