Raazi box office collection: Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal-starrer crosses Rs 50 cr mark in its opening week

Meghna Gulzar's latest film Raazi has made its way to the hearts of the audience as well as the cash registers at the box-office. The Alia Bhatt, Vicky Kaushal-starrer has crossed the Rs 50 crore mark and is now the fifth highest-grossing film of 2018 so far, which is a feat owing to the fact that it is made in a relatively smaller budget.

In addition to that, the film is shouldered on a female protagonist. Hence, it becomes a greater achievement since the box-office is generally ruled by the male stars in India.

She acts as a spy from the other side of the border and passes secret information to the Indian intelligence. The film released on 11 May.
