Women centric movies have become very common these days and the recent one to hit the screens is Alia Bhatt’s Razi. Alia has been a fabulous actress and she has proved her talent every now and then.
In Raazi, a film by Meghna Gulzar, Alia Bhatt essays the character of a spy Sehmat who gets married into a Pakistani family just for keeping the Indian authorities informed. This film is based on a novel by Harinder Sikka “Calling Sehmat”. After Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya, Alia was not to be seen on big screen.
Despite Raazi being a women-centric film, the response has been good. Here’s what Taran Adarsh tweeted about the collections;
