‘Raazi’ enters 100-crore club

New Delhi: Alia Bhatt-Vicky Kaushal starrer ‘Raazi’ has entered the 100-crore club.

The political thriller has earned 102.50 crores at the box office within 18 days of its release on May 11.

With the good word of mouth and positive reviews, the film has become the first non-franchise women-centric film to cross the 100 crore mark.

Remarkably, ‘Raazi’ is Alia’s third film in the 100-cr club, after ‘2 States’ and ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya’. It is Vicky’s first film in the elite club.

The film’s story is set against the backdrop of the Indo-Pak war in 1971, where an Indian girl (played by Alia Bhatt) marries a Pakistani Army officer (Vicky Kaushal) to spy for her country.

Based on ‘Calling Sehmat,’ a best-selling book by Harinder Sikka, the film was directed by Meghna Gulzar. (ANI)
