Raazi is from a genre which tends to grow only on word of mouth and no kind of promotion could get it the audience it needs. Alia Bhatt’s star-power could do the trick but still it requires more for what we are looking for. We know it’s too much to ask but will it be another surprise of 2018 and gain a hit status?
Alia Bhatt’s highest grossing movie is Badrinath Ki Dulhania with 107.69 crores and 2 States is on second with 104 crores. Whereas Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania is on 3rd rank with 78 crores. Raazi will surely aim at ending in the top 3 but can it surprise to end up being the highest grossing movie of Alia Bhatt?
Raazi, a cross-border spy drama, is based on the book titled Calling Sehmat. The film is set in Kashmir.
“In the film, Kashmir is not depicted in a negative light. Kashmir is a beautiful place and I love it. It is really unfortunate that their tourism business, which is a big part of the revenue, is affected because of the incidents that took place. People think that Kashmir is not a safe place to go, but that is not true,” Alia said.
She has already started shooting for Kalank, which will be Dharma Productions’ next film starring Varun Dhawan, Aditya Roy Kapur, Sonakshi Sinha, Madhuri Dixit and Sanjay Dutt. Alia feels the work one does must have a challenge. Otherwise, it becomes simple and similar and there is no fun and the feeling of accomplishing something.
Directed by Meghna Gulzar, the film also features Vicky Kaushal and Soni Razdan. It is set to release on May 11. Will it be Alia Bhatt’s highest grossing movie? Do let us know in the comments section below.
