Ex-Alia to play Varun’s ladylove in Rohit Shetty’s next

The ‘’Student of the year’ stars Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan reunited for Rohit Shetty next outing starring Shahrukh Khan in the pivotal role. Earlier, the couple was seen in ‘'Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya'. Rohit has signed Alia to play Varun’s love interest.

A source from the film production said, "A week ago, Alia was given a narration and she’s keen to feature in the SRK-starrer tentatively titled Dilwale. She will take a final call in the coming week as she’s already committed to Shakun Batra’s next which rolls around the same time.”

Kriti Sanon was also considered for Alia’s role but finally Alia got the final call. Sources said, “Varun and Alia’s chemistry has made filmmaker’s think over Alia’s name". As per report, Varun will play Shahrukh’s younger brother role.

The source added, “The makers, including Shah Rukh Khan, are clear that they will give priority to Alia over Kriti if the former can squeeze out the dates, which in all probability, she will.”

Alia and Varun were couple in the past but they broke up for some unknown reasons and now again they patched up for Rohit Shetty’s next flick.

When they were dating, Alia and Varun were clicked hanging out together.
