After Raazi achieved the 100 crore feat, director Meghna Gulzar told news agency IANS that having a tight budget boosted her confidence about the film's success: "We were working within a very modest budget and even though that made things a little tight, I wouldn't say it was difficult because that comes with every film. But the budget made things streamlined and very focused. So as a director, it helped me because then I go into the release of the film with a little more confidence."

Raazi marks Alia Bhatt's third film to have surpassed the 100 crore club after 2017's Badrinath Ki Dulhania and 2014's 2 States. "If I start taking these factors into account, it will affect my decision-making process when I am choosing a film. I have never thought about it in the past and I don't expect to do it in the future," she recently told mid-day in an interview.

Raazi tracks the story of an Indian woman named Sehmat, who is married off to a Pakistani army officer and planted in Pakistan to pass off valuable information to India. Set in 1972, Raazi is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat, which in turn is based on a real life events.

Next up, Alia Bhatt has films like Brahmastra, Kalank and Gully Boy in the pipeline.
