This is really good news for the team of Raazi given the fact that the film is based on a true event and has quite an intense storyline.
Raazi narrates the tale of an ordinary Indian girl (played by Alia) who was married to a Pakistani man (played by Vicky) in the 1970s.
Alia has proved time and again that she is here to play very long and impressive innings.
After her debut in a Karan Johar film, it was Imtiaz Ali’s gripping Highway that displayed the depth of Alia's acting prowess. Since then, the young girl has pulled off awe-inspiring performances in films like 2 States, Udta Punjab, Kapoor and Sons, Badrinath Ki Dulhania and Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and Raazi has proved to be equally good.
Alia has Zoya Akhtar's Gully Boy and Ayan Mukerji's Brahmastra trilogy in her kitty.
