Alia Bhatt who was last appeared in Raazi got an appreciation for portraying her role of an Indian spy, while talking about her role, she had said, “For me, it was a very big opportunity to portray something like this. When you are part of a true story, you automatically feel the sense of responsibility, even we have never ever seen the real life Sehmat ever. Having said that, it was also a great opportunity for me to create this character from scratch. Even though it was mentioned in the script, how she was going to be. But once you crack the way this girl spoke, everything else is done for you. Because the way you speak is the very much a depiction of your personality.”
Also, working with Meghna Gulzar, the director of Raazi, she said, “It was great actually. I loved her movies. Especially her last film Talwar really left a big impact on me. In my opinion she is one of the most detailed directors I have worked with, who gives attention to every detail and so her world seems very real. I feel so good that I have worked with Meghna in such an sensitive and extensive story (Raazi).”
