In the year 1981, Soni Razdan has made her debut with Aparna Sen’s 36 Chowringhee Lane. Later on, she has done movies like Mandi, Saaransh, Sadak and Page 3. Some television has been done by Soni also with dramas like Buniyaad. On theatre, she has been seen in Satyadev Dubey. However, all these have not been easy for Soni at all. Regarding this, she has said “Getting into films wasn’t easy, particularly for me because I didn’t exactly look like an Indian village girl when I was young. I was getting into an industry which wasn’t ready for me at any level. For me, to even have had made a small mark was a big achievement”
During renovation of her house, she has stayed with daughter Alia in Juhu. Following to a gap of years, she may be seen in couple of projects in future. Soni is expected to be a part of Megna Gulzar’s Raazi also alongside her daughter Alia Bhatt. In addition, she is playing the lead in Sanjoy Nag’s Yours Truly. In the same, her husband Mahesh Bhatt will be doing a cameo too.
In Raazi, Soni Razdan is playing the role of Alia’s mother. According to Soni, it is certainly a privilege to work with an excellent director like Megha Gulzar. Same can be said for her daughter Alia as well. Cast of Raazi has been amazing as well. Many things are said through a powerful movie like Raazi. She is really happy with the fact that Alia has been doing such a human story.
Soni thinks that there are lots of opportunities for her at the moment. Interesting roles are written these days. However, she has no wish to play a role that has no substance at all.
