According to a statement from the makers of the Meghna Gulzar directorial, "the strong word of mouth benefited the film". It registered Rs 7.53 crore on its opening day, followed by collections of Rs 11.30 crore and Rs. 14.11 crore on the subsequent days of the weekend.

Based on Harinder Sikka's book "Calling Sehmat", the story of the film "Raazi" revolves around a young Kashmiri girl who gets married to a Pakistani Army officer and becomes a spy to give inside information about the neighbouring country to protect her own.

"Films are purely driven by content. This film highlights emotions, situations and passions so beautifully that one believes everything the actors are going through," said Vibha Chopra, Head - Zee Studios International (Film Marketing, Distribution and Acquisition). 

"Bringing this brilliance forward to maximum people is what we wanted to do. Raazi is a real story of a girl who has been through this, Experiences are something that should be told and the genius of our cinema should be spoken about globally," Chopra added.
