Raazi is a 2018 Indian spy thriller film directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Vineet Jain,Karan Johar, Hiroo Yash Johar and Apoorva Mehta under the banner of Dharma Productions. It features Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal in lead roles.
The Alia Bhatt and Vicky Kaushal-starrer spy film Raazi will not see the light of day in Pakistan.The film’s release was shown a red flag as no distributor agreed to purchase the film because of its controversial content.
Talking to local media, a senior distribution company official said, “It is disappointing to see that films on controversial subjects are being produced in India time and again. All our distributors are well aware about Alia’s role in ‘Raazi’ and so; no one is willing to purchase the film. Patriotism is another reason for distributors not being pushed about buying the film. Indian producers should know that all our distributors have unanimously decided to boycott such controversial films.”
In an interview to The Hindu Vicky Kaushal had revealed that it would be erroneous to call the film a ‘war’ film. He said:
“The film is not just about the Indo-Pak war, it is much deeper than that. It is about an individual relationship. It is also about an era when there was tension between the two countries and during that time a Kashmiri woman married a Pakistani major.”
