The two-minute long trailer portrays her as an obedient daughter, dutiful wife and a brave spy. Set in 1971 during Indo-Pakistan war, the movie is all about an Indian girl marrying a Pakistani officer to source out intelligence details and pass it off to Indian forces.
Alia plays a Kashmiri girl Sehmat who is trained in passing the message on morse code, handling the gun, driving, self-defence and what not to save herself in the difficult situations. She is then married to Iqbal, a Pakistani officer. How Sehmat helped the Indian army to win against the enemies forms the crux of the story.
Bankrolled by Karan Johar and Vineet Jain, the romantic-spy thriller tells us the tale of an unsung hero. The period drama is all set for a grand release on May 11.
