Alia's performance has been appreciated a lot. The movie also stars noted actor Rajit Kapoor in a pivotal role.
Mahesh Bhatt's darling daughter made her debut in Bollywood with Karan Johar's out-and-out masala commercial film 'Student Of The Year' in 2012. After her breakthrough act in 'Udta Punjab', the actress is back with a gritty narrative in Meghna Gulzar's 'Raazi'.
She will next be seen in Zoya Akhtar's 'Gully Boy' opposite Ranveer Singh.
