Alia Bhatt, B-town’s latest newcomer has her hands full. After delivering a super hit movie, Student Of The Year, Alia now has two more movies up her sleeve.
Thanks to Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt will now be seen in 2 states. The movie is screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name. Though Chetan was very skeptical about casting Alia Bhatt for the role, a photoshoot of Alia in the character convinced him that Alia would nail the character.
Its rumoured that “Chetan and Sajid were convinced from the outset that they’d cast a Punjabi actor and a South Indian actress to retain full authenticity in the plot. The original plan was to cast Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone. But when Arjun Kapoor stepped into the picture Deepika couldn’t be seen looking compatible with Arjun.”
Since they couldnt possibly pair Deepika with Arjun, Karan suggested Alia for the role. Well, as they say one man’s loss is another man’s gain and in this case it’s Deepika’s loss and Alia’s gain. Moreover, when they started the photoshoot, Alia shocked everyone. Apparently nobody expected Alia do the role well with out a lot of hard work. But she showed everyone how determined she is towards her work. Now it’s only the accent that Alia will have to work rather hard on. Let’s hope all goes well for Alia!
