Raazi is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat, which is the story of an Indian spy (Alia Bhatt in the film) married to a Pakistani army officer (Vicky Kaushal's character) during the India-Pakistan War of 1971. Speaking to news agency IANS, Alia Bhatt had said that in Raazi "The audience will see me in completely different avatar."

Alia Bhatt juggles between the roles of 'a daughter,' 'a wife' and 'a spy' in the film, parts of which have been shot in Kashmir. Raazi is co-produced by Junglee Pictures and Karan Johar's Dharma Productions. The film will arrive in theatres on May 11.

Raazi aside, Alia Bhatt is filming Brahmastra and Gully Boy - both of which will release next year.
