Heart Of Stone, in which Bollywood star Alia Bhatt makes her Hollywood debut, has been unveiled. The trailer, which features Alia Bhatt, Gal Gadot, and Jamie Dornan, was published recently as part of the Netflix TUDUM 2023 event in Brazil.
Gal is out to save the world [as usual] in the spy thriller, and Alia appears to be the perfect counterbalance to all of Gal’s efforts. According to the clip, Gal plays Rachel Stone, a member of the Charter, a secret agency. Members of the elite agency collaborate for the greater good and international peace despite having “no friends, no relationships…no political leanings…no national allegiance.”
Alia Bhatt appears, mouthing scary lines that suggests she may be the villain to watch out for. “You think you know everything,” she continues, “but the world is about to see the truth.” Do not overlook the gun in Alia Bhatt’s hands. The trailer for the video was uploaded on social media by the film’s actors, including Alia. She captioned the video, “HEART OF STONE [fire emoji].” “August 11”.
Gal Gadot responded to the tweet with a heart emoji. Lilly Singh, an actress and comedian, exclaimed, “Let’s go sis.” Vir Das, an actor and comedian, used fire emojis. “This is amazing,” remarked Mouni Roy, who collaborated with Alia Bhatt on Brahmastra.
Gal Gadot even tweeted a video from the Netflix event in Brazil, much to the joy of fans. She is seen in the video sharing the stage with actors Alia and Dornan, while supporters cheer. “The set up- The shot,” she said in the caption. WOW! Thank you, Brazil.”
When will be Heart of Stone release date?
Heart of Stone will be available on Netflix on August 11, 2023
Who is in the Heart of Stone cast?
Gadot plays MI6 agent Parker against Dornan, while Alia Bhatt plays hacker Keya Dhawan. Sophie Okonedo, Matthias Schweighöfer from Army of the Dead, Jing Lusi, and Paul Ready round out the cast.
Gadot felt firmly that the role of Rachel Stone should be more realistic after playing a heroic goddess in Wonder Woman and a sophisticated heist queen in Red Notice. “It was really important to me that Rachel be a character who can fight, but I also wanted her to be able to use her brain, intuition, and emotions,” she explained to Netflix. “She doesn’t just charge in with weapons blazing. She considers how she affects people and circumstances. I prefer characters that demonstrate that women can be both beautiful and strong, and that these qualities are not mutually contradictory.”
What exactly is Heart of Stone about?
The Heart is the world’s most powerful AI, capable of tracking anyone’s complete online history and then predicting what they will do in the future. But it’s not just about guessing how many episodes of Queen Charlotte you’ll watch in one sitting or what you’ll bake for dinner. The Heart may advise on prospective global dangers and even provide odds on their effectiveness in neutralization. This is when the Charter comes into play.

“The Heart is what’s called a general AI — an AI that can do anything you want it to do, and it becomes a master of that immediately,” VFX supervisor Mark Breakspear told Netflix. “No one has yet created a general AI.” It’s also linked to a quantum computer, which processes information far faster than a traditional computer. The Heart is tasked with monitoring all human data, processing it, looking for trends, and then predicting based on those patterns. The Charter employs the Heart to assess a given situation and assist its operatives in determining what to do.”
