But guess who wasn’t the happy one? Well, it was Ranbir Kapoor. The actor was keen on having Alia Bhatt act opposite him instead.
“Ranbir has always believed that Alia has a lot of potential as an actor. So he had suggested her name, and asked if she fits the role. But she is too young for the part,” Imtiaz Ali told to a leading English daily.
