India.com had exclusively informed readers that Alia Bhatt as a special surprise for fans in Raazi and that she will be rendering her voice to a song in the film. Well, we don’t know as yet if the actress has sung a song in the Raazi album but here she is singing one of the songs from the Meghna Gulzar film at the grand finale of Rising Star 2 2018. She is matching her tune to singer-composer Shankar Mahadevan, who is not just the judge on the singing reality show, but also the composer of the period film Raazi, also starring Vicky Kaushal.

The song ‘Aye Watan, Watan Mere Aabad Rahe Tu’ is soulful and evoke patriotism and Alia did a wonderful job singing an unplugged version of it on the show. She is a gorgeous singer and has earlier wooed us with her voice in songs like Samajhawan and Aey Zindagi Gale Laga Le. And she does it again. You have to listen to the song to believe it. The video was shared by Shankar Mahadevan on his instagram page and we cannot thank him enough. The video has got a lot of comments with fans unanimously agreeing that Alia is a great singer and should croon more often. They also gave the song thumbs up for the lyrics.

Impressed, aren’t we? On the work front, the actress has wrapped up the shooting of Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy where she pairs up with Ranveer Singh for the first time ever – in a film, they have done a few commercials for a travel website in the past. The actress is also slated to start on the next schedule of Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra with Ranbir Kapoor. Also, we hear the actress is in talks with an ace filmmaker for a very interesting film. She gave us a hint about the same through an Insta post a while ago, however, we are still waiting for an official announcement on which film this will be. Alia was also spotted at Mahesh Bhatt’s office with Sanjay Dutt which sparked speculation that the team is now ready to start working on Sadak 2.
