Audience will see me in a brand new avtar in Raazi: Alia Bhatt
The actor plays the role of Sehmat, a Kashmiri woman who marries a Pakistani officer with the intention to gather intelligence
Alia Bhatt, who is playing the lead in Meghna Gulzar's Raazi, says the audience will see her in a completely different role in the film.
"I think in Raazi audience will see me in brand new avtar. It's the first time I am doing a period film and it is based on true story as well, so I am very excited for it and I hope audience will like it," she says.
Raazi is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's Calling Sehmat, a novel inspired by the almost-unbelievable real-life story of a woman who Sikka named Sehmat, to protect her identity.
Alia plays Sehmat, a Kashmiri woman who marries a Pakistani officer with the intention of gathering intelligence details and passing it to Indian forces. Vicky Kaushal essays the role of the Pakistani officer.
Raazi, produced by Karan Johar and Vineet Jain, is scheduled for release on May 11.
