As Raazi completed three years of its release, Amruta Khanvilkar opened up about her working experience with Alia, Vicky Kaushal in the film. Here’s what she has to say about them
Marathi actor Amruta Khanvilkar did a notable role as Munira Syed, the sister-in-law of Alia Bhatt aka Sehmat in Meghna Gulzar’s Raazi. The film completed three glorious years of its release on May 11 and speaking about the film, Amruta went back in time when she was selected for the role. During the same conversation, she even opened up about her working experience with Alia, Vicky Kaushal in the film. Khanvilkar said that she was mesmerised with Alia’s craft and character while she called Kaushal ‘a fabulous guy and an actor par excellence’.
She was quoted saying by TOI, “I really bonded well with Vicky in our first schedule. He is a fabulous guy and an actor par excellence. He watches films of almost all languages and he had watched a few of my regional films too. It was amazing of him to mention them to me and praise me for the same. Also, being a Mumbai boy, he and his brother Sunny speak excellent Marathi so I really bonded well with him. With Alia Bhatt, I was just very mesmerised watching her in the character and her workspace. Sehmat was a difficult character, it had so many layers and to see Alia perform was an absolute treat! She was simply outstanding.”
Talking about Alia’s mother Soni Razdan, Amruta called her ‘the most chilled person’ on the set and was full of energy whereas she recalled how Rajit Kapur used to pull her legs and did a lot of masti on the set.
As Raazi completed three years of its release, Amruta said that the box-office success of the movie was a pleasant surprise for them. “The way the story of Sehmat reached the hearts of the people, it is truly amazing,” she said.
