After the critically acclaimed Talvar, Meghna Gulzar is flagging off the screen adaptation of Harinder Sikka's book, Calling Sehmat, which has Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in the lead roles. The film, titled Raazi , will see both the actors sharing the screen space for the first time.
The film is being produced by Karan Johar under his banner Dharma Productions.
Expressing his excitement on working with Meghna Gulzar and Alia Bhatt, Vicky said, "I'm honoured to be getting an opportunity to work with Meghana Gulzar and also looking forward to working with Alia, who I feel is one of the finest actresses we have at the moment. Actually, the entire team is so talented and especially to be working with Dharma Productions is rewarding for any young actor. I'll soon wrap up Raju Sir's Film and will begin shooting for Raazi.
The production house tweeted the announcement of the film, which will be an espionage drama set in the 70s.
Alia is known for experimenting with her choices, be it Highway, Udta Punjab or Dear Zindagi, we have seen Vicky portraying a variety of roles from a boy next door in Masaan to a bad cop in Raman Raghav. This will be the first-period film for both of them.
Raazi is about a Kashmiri woman married to an Army officer across the border who provides Indian intelligence with invaluable information during the 1971 Indo-Pak war.
The actors have already got a sense of their characters in the workshops conducted by Meghna earlier this week. The shooting is expected to begin by the end of this month.
