Mandi, which won the National Award in 1984, starred Shabana Azmi, Naseeruddin Shah, Soni Razdan and Smita Patil in lead roles. Directed by Shyam Benegal, the film narrated the story of a brothel.

Speaking of Alia and Soni, the mother-daughter duo shared screen space for the first time in the 2018 hit Raazi, which also marked Razdan's return to the silver screen. The veteran actress has given the audience some memorable movies including Saaransh, Sadak, Monsoon Wedding, Page 3, and Shootout at Wadala.

On the work front, Alia will be next seen in Takht, Brahmastra and her home production Sadak 2. The latter marks her father Mahesh Bhatt's return to direction after 20 years, and the film also stars sister Pooja Bhatt and Sanjay Dutt. The movie is the sequel to Mahesh Bhatt's 1991-hit Sadak, which revolved around a taxi driver (Sanjay) trying to rescue the woman he loves (Pooja) from a brothel. It also featured Sadashiv Amrapurkar as Maharani, the brothel's owner, and Soni Razdan, Bhatt's wife. Sadak 2 will hit the theatres next year on July 10.

In Brahmastra, Alia will be romancing alleged beau Ranbir Kapoor. Written and directed by Ayan Mukerji, Brahmastra is a three-part fantasy film that stars Amitabh Bachchan, Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, and Mouni Roy in lead roles. The fantasy drama film, which was initially scheduled to release around Christmas this year, will now hit the big screens in summer 2020.
