lia on playing real life character Sehmat in Raazi: It came with responsibility
Alia Bhatt will soon be seen on screen as a real-life character Sehmat, the first time that she is playing a character based on a person who existed.
Speaking about pressure around that, Alia, at the recently held ‘Raazi’ song ‘Ae Watan’s launch, said, “There was pressure because this is a true story and I am playing a character that actually existed and that comes with a sense of responsibility and I hope there is the right amount of representation and emotions. I hope people feel what his character is feeling.”
Alia plays an Indian spy based in Pakistan, married to a Pakistani officer played by Vicky Kaushal in the film.
The trailer of the film showed the conflict between the two countries and Alia’s character as a strong woman who is ready to put her country before anything else.
