Alia Bhatt to romance Sushant Singh Rajput

Alia Bhatt will next be paired opposite Sushant Singh Rajput in Homi Adajania’s next.  The untitled film will be produced by Saif Ali Khan’s production house, Illuminati Films.

Says a source, “This is a fresh pairing. Alia and Sushant have not worked with each other so far, but both have shown a lot of promise in their recent films. They have now been signed on to star in Homi Adajania’s next film.”

Trade analysts think this fresh and new casting would be an interesting one.

Trade analyst Amod Mehra says, “After 2 States, Alia has proved that she can exert a box-office pull. With this casting, she has now been paired with almost all young stars except Ranveer Singh and Aditya Roy Kapur."

Alia Bhatt who debuted with Karan Johar’s ‘Student of the year’ has delivered one after another hit. She was highly applauded for ‘Highway’ and showed her acting calibre in ‘2 States’ and ‘Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya’. She has also signed Vikas Bahl’s ‘Shaandar’ with Shahid Kapoor and Ayan Mukherjee’s rom-com opposite Ranbir Kapoor. While Sushant Singh Rajput who was last seen in ‘Kai Po Che’ is currently shooting for Rajkumar Hirani’s P.K. and Dibakar Banerjee’s ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshi’ and after completion will shoot for Shekhar Kapur’s Paani from December 1st.
