Actor Jaideep Ahlawat, who plays a pivotal character in the film said, “Raazi explores a very interesting political phase before the 1971 war. The story was worth telling because it captures the relationship between three countries – India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, which was going through a turmoil then.” He further explained that Raazi is not a war film, “The film is about the war, but does not show the war. The story of the film revolves around the strategy making phase that both the countries (India and Pakistan) went through before the war started. If we look at any war in the world history, once the war starts, it’s all about firing and death. But the most interesting phase is the preparation, that is why I found the story interesting.”
