Actress Alia Bhatt will be seen next in Meghna Gulzar’s directorial Raazi, she shared about her career graph, her idea of patriotism and how she wants to portray different characters.

This is her first period thriller. When asked if she felt burdened in any way, since she was playing a character inspired by a real-life person. Alia said: It was a very big opportunity for me to portray something very honest. As it is based on a true story, there automatically comes a sense of responsibility. I had to create this character of Sehmat from scratch. Even when there is a book on Sehmat (Raazi is an adoption of Calling Sehmat by Harimder Sikka), I think it was a personal journey of cracking the character. We started cracking her character on a very basic level. For me it happened when I learnt how she spoke as the way people speak, it depicts their personalities.

Sehmat is the nicest person, full of innocence. But I can’t relate to her. No! There is too much of a selfless act that she has done for her country. I don’t think I can ever do that. I can empathize with her but I can’t relate with her. I was very careful because I knew what I am doing is acting, but what Sehmat did, actually happened. It was scary.

About Raazi, Alia said: I learnt a lot. What we think is being patriotic is quite opposite to what true patriotism is. We think we are patriotic because we believe in our country and that we love our country. But that is not enough. There has to be action resonating our feelings. We have to add value. We have to participate in activities that are not only beneficial to us. This is what I learnt from this journey of playing Sehmat in Raazi. As an artiste and as an individual, I have a huge number of followers, people who look up to me. What is the use of having people following me if I can’t use my voice for any good.

She playa an Indian spy married to a Pakistani military officer during the Indo-Pakistan War of 1971, she talked about patriotism. Alia said: I have a take on a lot of things, but I think that’s the problem today. Everybody has a take on everything. There is no need to have a take, just feel. Don’t only talk about what’s wrong. Think about what we can do to fix what is wrong. For example, when I went with Aamir (Khan) recently, it was a candid decision. I understood what he is doing. He is imparting knowledge to people of our country, to the farmers who need it and doing his bit with Paani Foundation. This way people know how to survive and solve their problems, and in turn solve the drought crisis in Maharashtra. For me that is being a true patriot, for me actions speak louder than words.

Meghna Gulzar is known for her ‘documentary’ type films, based on authentic research. She talked about working with her. Alia said: I loved working with Meghna. I love her films, especially Talvar. It left a very deep impact on me. In my honest opinion, her attention to detail is very specific, and she takes it very seriously. And, because of that the world she creates, feels very real.

I can’t believe that I have done a film like Raazi with Meghna because along with her I have also lived the life and journey of Sehmat. We have nurtured this film. We have given it a lot of love as it is such an intense story.

Alia Bhatt says contentment is very boring. She doesn’t like to be content. She likes to satisfied with a task and complete it. She wants to be satisfied with a new task and keep moving on.

Goals are limiting, once she achieves a goal, it is over. She like to look for a new goal. She prefers not to set goals and keep working hard and keep getting better at it.
