A film jointly produced by Junglee Pictures and Dharma Production with Meghna Gulzar in, her directorial venture wherein they will be working together for the film starring Alia Bhatt as the Kashmiri wife of the Army Officer Vicky Kaushal.
This is not Meghna Gulzar's first film. Her earlier film Talvar got her critical acclaim and is working on her project based on Sikka's book.
This film will revolve around a Kashmiri woman who marries an Army Officer across the border who provides Indian Intelligence with ivaluable information shot during the 1971 Indo-Pak War.
Vicky Kaushal is in talks and is yet to sign the dotted line but the filmmaker is looking at him as the performer for this kind of a role with Alia Bhatt.
The film is yet to be given a title and is likely to go on floors from next month.
Alia Bhatt herself was not very comfortable initially to accept this role as the subject itself is controversial but then being Mahesh Bhatt's daughter I guess you learn from controversies when her father helped her to take the decision and take it in her stride. She thus agreed to be on board. She has already done one of the best roles in a hard hitting film, Udta Punjab. Meghna Gulzar and Alia Bhatt have already started the spade work .
Alia Bhatt who is known for her being a perfectionist at this young age of 24 is expected to leave for Kashmir to dwell up on the story of Kashmir which will help her essay her character . She is also reading a lot on this subject.
