The family film will be directed by Shakun Batra, whose debut movie "Ek Mai Aur Ekk Tu" was also produced by Johar's Dharma Productions.
Johar posted a couple of tweets to share the title and cast of the film. "A modern family film with a love triangle embedded in it...KAPOOR and SONS directed by @shakunbatra..... Cast coming up next....," he first tweeted. Later the director posted, "KAPOOR and SONS starring @S1dharthM @_fawadakhan_ @aliaa08 and @chintskap @KapoorAndSons @DharmaMovies."
The movie also stars veteran actor Rishi Kapoor, who has worked with Johar in Hrithik Roshan starrer "Agneepath".
This is the first time Pakistani heartthrob Fawad would be working with Johar. Sidharth and Alia, who made their Bollywood debut in Johar's directorial venture "Student of The Year", have starred in the filmmaker's different productions earlier including "Hasee Toh Phasee" and "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania" respectively.
