Alia -Sidharth hot pair in Karan Johar film

With so much going on between Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra, it could have only gotten better with a film starring both of them - and its finally happening! Yes, the two would be seen sharing the screen space in an upcoming film, along with the ‘Khoobsurat’ actor Fawad Khan. It is remake of a classic film that made Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff a hit duo. It is none other than the 1989 hit ‘Ram Lakhan’ by Subhash Ghai.

Other than Anil Kapoor and Jackie Shroff, the original featured Madhuri Dixit and Dimple Kapadia. Now Alia will step into the shoes of Madhuri. It is likely that Sidharth would be playing Ram and Fawad would be seen as Lakhan. The film had earlier been officially announced, although the entire cast hadn’t been revealed then. It had been reported that Karan is making a film featuring Sidharth Malhotra and Fawad Khan as brothers and one of them would be gay. This film is in fact the remake of ‘Ram Lakhan’. Alia Bhatt’s name had been doing the rounds then, and now the actress has been finalized.

Karan had given some details about this Shakun Batra directorial on Twitter in February- “Rarely does a filmmaker write a super script in 2 [email protected]’s new family film just got greenlit and cast! Details coming up....” Now the details are here and it would be interesting to see how filmmakers add the ‘gay’ factor to this ‘Ram Lakhan’ remake. Initially, Arjun Kapoor had been approached and asked to share the screen space with Sidharth Malhotra. But the former declined and then Fawad Khan was roped in. It would be a family film and has been titled ‘Kapoor & Sons’. It hadn’t been known earlier which of the two actors would ply gay. Now it has been revealed that the ‘Student of the Year’ actor Sidharth is the one to play this challenging role.

The film features two brothers belonging to a dysfunctional family. The family goes on weekend vacation when the gay son finally lets the cat out of the bag. Now coming to the spicy news of Sidharth and Alia romancing, a source confirms that the two would be setting the screens ablaze, “There’s one really intense and intimate love-making scene between them. It goes way beyond the kiss they shared in Student of the Year.” The movie is said to be an unconventional family movie, whose storyline has been shaped according to the modern times.
