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.
