The film Raazi also featured Marathi actress Amruta Khanvilkar and she recently expressed her experiences of working with Meghna and Alia. She said, “Apart from the story line, Meghna Gulzar was one of the key reasons for me to do the film. I have never played the role of a Pakistani Muslim before, and that too playing a real-life character was very intriguing,” Amruta told IANS.
“Every day was an enriching learning experience – be it speaking language (Urdu dialect) or being around Meghna ma’am or shooting scenes with Alia. The entire experience was enthralling.”
Based on Harinder Sikka’s book Calling Sehmat, the story of the film Raazi revolves around a young Kashmiri girl who gets married to a Pakistani Army officer and becomes a spy to give inside information about the neighbouring country to protect her own.
On working with Alia, she said, “I believe she is an extremely secure actor and an extremely receiving and giving actor. Her performance in ‘Raazi’ speaks volumes of her talent. This girl who in just 25 years of age has achieved so much in such less time and has seen stardom like no one else her age – but despite all this, she is so grounded, which truly reflects her upbringing.”
