‘Calling Sehmat’ author Harinder Sikka on Monday took to Twitter to expose how Raazi, the Alia Bhatt film based on the book, had a different ending than his book.
He further said that in reality, Sehmat, the Indian spy, believed that nothing before the nation. Sehmat had killed her husband in the Pakistani Army in her line of duty while collecting intelligence and escaped to return to India shortly later. In the movie, Sehmat can be seen having a remorse while breaking down after killing him.
We MUST boycott supporters of #Pakistani hukumat.#Gulzar interview to #IndianExpress exposes why narrative was changed. Appeasing #Pakis was more important?— Harinder S Sikka (@sikka_harinder) July 20, 2020
Said #Sehmat ‘Watan ke aage kuchh nahin.’
I regret selecting @meghnagulzar as director. https://t.co/wxsKaC1xxu
Pls read the book. Sehmat, the hero, did not come back depressed. Instead, she saluted Tri-color,band played National Anthem.#Gulzar intentionally changed narrative to appease #Pakis— Harinder S Sikka (@sikka_harinder) July 20, 2020

He said that Sehmat, the actual hero, was not depressed on her return. He reiterated that Meghna Gulzar intentionally changed the narrative to appease the Pakistanis.
Harinder Sikka exposes how Bollywood lobby operates
As the nepotism and ‘Bollywood mafia’ debate rages on, Calling Sehmat author, on whose book the film ‘Raazi’ was based, exposed how the prominent figures in Bollywood resort to ugly lobbying. In a Republic TV debate, Sikka alleged that since Meghna Gulzar wanted all the credits for Raazi for herself and the Bollywood mafia gang did not want an ‘outsider’ like Sikka to win any awards or accolades.
