- Raazi is the story of an Indian spy married to a Pakistani army officer
- Alia plays the Indian spy while Vicky Kaushal is her onscreen husband

Alia Bhatt plays the role of Sehmat, a spy's daughter trained to take over from her father. As a part of a secret project, she marries Iqbal (Vicky Kaushal), who is enrolled in the Pakistani army along with his father and elder brother.
In an interview with news agency PTI, Vicky Kaushal had said that Iqbal's balanced portrayal is the "beauty of the character." He had said: "To try breaking the quintessential mold of the Army guy and the Pakistani guy. When we mix the two, an image always emerges - he would be crude, shrewd and a fanatic. Iqbal's character breaks the image. That was the beauty of this role."
Raazi is based on Harinder Sikka's book Calling Sehmat, which in turn is inspired by true events. The film also stars Rajit Kapur, Shishir Sharma and Soni Razdan.
