When things turned from bad to worse regarding the verdict of Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh, the situation in Patiala weren’t great. Alia Bhatt was shooting for her next film ‘Raazi’ in the region and recently spoke about the experience.
“It wasn’t as scary [for us] but it was clearly frightening for everyone in the state and even outside. We were still safe inside the hotels and we didn’t step out. Of course, that’s something we had to do. But I feel really bad for people, who weren’t safe, were out on the roads, and were subject to all the violence,” said Bhatt, according to Pinkvilla.
She further added, “I won’t lie. Yes, it has been very challenging. The shooting [of the film] is still on, and I still have a month left [before its completion]. We have been shooting in almost a non-stop manner, barring a few days when the shoot got disrupted [due to the recent unrest in the region]. But overall, it has been a good and an interesting journey — creatively as well as mentally. I am in Patiala right now, and I feel that when you are shooting outdoors, it’s always lovely because you are only with your film dedicating all your energies and attention to it. Plus, it’s lovely being in Patiala”.
‘Raazi’ also stars Vicky Kaushal.
