Raazi is Alia Bhatt's third film to enter the 100 crore club. 2014's 2 States and last year's Badrinath Ki Dulhania are her other two films with over Rs 100 crore earnings.

I have never thought about it in the past and I don't expect to do it in the future," she told mid-day.
The plot of Raazi, directed by Meghna Gulzar, revolves around the year 1971 (Indo-Pak war). It is based on Harinder Sikka's novel Calling Sehmat. In the film, Alia's character Sehmat is married to a Pakistani army officer, played by Vicky Kaushal.
Raazi was Alia Bhatt's first release of this year. She will next be seen in Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy, co-starring Ranveer Singh. She also has Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor in the line-up.
