They made magic on screen with the 2016 film Dear Zindagi. And also this time we expected the same.
Earlier this month, a photo of Alia with SRK and Aanand went viral, leading many to consider that she has been signed on for the movie. Only on that point was no substantiation on the same.
Simply starting with the latest buzz, it is almost official that Alia and Katrina will share screen space with Shah Rukh Khan in Rai's ambitious project.
However, a lot has been said about SRK's character wherein he plays a dwarf, nothing has been revealed about Alia and Katrina's characters in the film.
A source was quoted as saying, "Alia Bhatt has been yet to sign on the dotted line, but has verbally committed to the film.
The three players will start prepping once Katrina Kaif completes the ongoing Abu Dhabi schedule of her movie with Salman Khan. Rai plans to take the project on the floors later this year."
However, it reports are to be believed, Alia wasn't the first choice for the film.
