Actress Soni Razdan, who shares the frame with her daughter
Alia Bhatt for the first time in "Raazi", says everyone was in tears while
shooting the track "Dilbaro".
Soni, who is married to filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt, on Friday morning shared a still from "Raazi". In the photograph, Alia is sporting a bridal look, while Soni, who essays her on-screen mother is seen walking behind her.
"This song had us all crying while we were shooting it. We didn't need no glycerine. Mother daughter, bidai, dont go, 'Raazi'," she captioned the image.
"Raazi" is an adaptation of Harinder Sikka's "Calling Sehmat", a novel inspired by the almost-unbelievable real-life story of a woman who Sikka named Sehmat, to protect her identity.
Alia is playing Sehmat, a Kashmiri woman who marries a Pakistani officer with the intention to source out intelligence details and pass it on to Indian forces. Vicky Kaushal plays a Pakistani officer.
"Raazi" is directed by Meghna Gulzar and produced by Karan Johar and Vineet Jain. It is scheduled to release on May 11.
