Karan Johar has cast Alia Bhatt opposite none other than Shah Rukh Khan in his next production to be helmed by Gauri Shinde.
The Bhatt girl has finally made it. After acting with the Dhawans and the Malhotras, Alia Bhatt has finally graduated into the big Khan league of Bollywood. And all this courtesy her mentor, Karan Johar who has cast the young actress opposite none other than Shah Rukh Khan in his next production to be helmed by Gauri Shinde.
Confirming the news was Karan Johar himself by tweeting: “Red Chillies Entertainment…Dharma and Hope Productions are proud to present Gauri Shinde’s next starring…Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt.”
It remains to be seen if the movie will have Alia romancing SRK, something that she has said is not quite possible due to her age difference or it will have a more mature track. Whatever the story, this truly is the casting coup of the season.
Gauri Shinde had made her directorial debut with Sridevi starrer ‘English Vinglish’.
