New Delhi: Director Karan Johar has just confirmed the rumours that actor Shah Rukh Khan will be paired with actress Alia Bhatt in an upcoming film to be directed by Gauri Shinde.
"Red Chillies Entertainment...Dharma and Hope Productions are proud to present Gauri Shinde's next starring...SHAH RUKH KHAN and ALIA BHATT..," tweeted KJo.
Alia Bhatt is only four movies old but this actress is already scoring high on the success scale. Her upcoming film with Shahid Kapoor titled ‘Shaandaar' has become one of the hottest gossip topics of the town. ‘Shaandaar's' trailer was launched a few days ago and saw over 4 million hits.
Alia has another movie in her kitty. Gauri Shinde of English Vinglish fame approached Katrina Kaif for the role but that didn't happen and Alia got the part. In this ambitious project of Shinde, Alia will be sharing screen space with three newbies.
But as we now know, this is not the only cast there is!
Superstar Shah Rukh Khan is the latest addition to the film. This obviously is grand news for the actress. With Shah Rukh Khan in her movie, Alia would definitely be in for a blockbuster. The actress will learn a lot from King Khan and this just might turn out to be her biggest achievement.
Apparently, Karan Johar was the one who suggested Alia's name for the role to Gauri Shinde. Given the equation of KJo and SRK, it shouldn't come as a surprise if Karan was also the reason behind Shah Rukh's appearance in the film.
Well, we hope Shah Rukh will be Alia's ticket to success!
