It’s Official: Alia to romance Ranbir in Ayan Mukherjee’s next

With four back to back hits, Alia Bhatt is all over the places. After the success of ‘Student Of The Year’, ‘Highway’, ‘2 States’ and ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania’, Alia Bhatt has been signed by Dharma Productions for a film to be directed by Ayan Mukherji. Not much has been known about the storyline except that Karan Johar has signed dynamic Alia and Ranbir for the film.

Karan has tweeted about casting Alia and Ranbir in his next production. The film will go on floor in mid next year and release on Christmas 2016.

Karan tweeted, "AYAN MUKERJI's next for Dharma productions is slated to begin mid next year and release December 23rd,2016. RANBIR KAPOOR and ALIA BHATT..."

There were reports about Ayan approaching Alia but there were not any official confirmation. It is also heard that Ranbir suggested Alia’s name for Imtiaz Alia’s next but the director felt Deepika Padukone would be the right choice.

Ranbir and Ayan, who are close buddies, have delivered two hits together 'Wake Up Sid' and 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', both for Dharma Productions.

Alia finds Ranbir highly adorable and she once expressed her desire to marry Ranbir in Karan Johar’s chat show, ‘Koffee With Karan’. Alia also said that she wants to go on a date with the actor.

When Karan asked her whether Neetu Singh and Katrina Kaif  are aware of her plan, she said that she is open about it and everybody knows her plan.

“I have gone on record and said it as you said.. and I am very open about it except to Ranbir,” she said.
