It's after a long hiatus that actress Soni Razdan is facing the camera with Meghna Gulzar's film 'Raazi', which features her daughter Alia Bhatt and actor Vicky Kaushal in the lead roles. The crew is currently shooting in Kashmir's Srinagar and had a shoot sequence organised at the town's Pahalgam's Government Civil Hospital.

Apart from the film's crew and cast, the actress and her mom attracted a crowd of around 300 people to catch a glimpse of the mother-daughter duo shooting, says a Mumbai Mirror report.
A source informed the publication that Alia Bhatt's mom Soni Razdan plays her mother in the film too. Both were without make-up and were dressed in cotton salwar-kurtas. The shoot commenced around 2 pm and wrapped up by 5:30 pm. The unit will be flying back to Mumbai on Wednesday.
Preventive measures were taken to safeguard the hospital's patients' safety with a doctor on his toes outside the set. Officials from Jammu and Kashmir police force and jawans from the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) were positioned to maintain a solid security around the hospital area.
