And, this time, the very happening Alia Bhatt is joining the duo for what promises to be an unconventional super-hero film. While Ayan Mukerji’s leading man has remained unchanged in all his three films, his leading lady has changed from Konkona Sen in Wake Up Sid to Deepika Padukone in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani and now, Alia Bhatt in the super-hero film.
Alia Bhatt and Ranbir Kapoor have desired to work together for the longest time. During the promotion of Imtiaz Ali‘s Highway, which starred Alia Bhatt, Ranbir Kapoor, who’s a close friend of Imtiaz Ali was repeatedly heard imploring Imtiaz Ali to cast him with Alia Bhatt.
Now Ranbir Kapoor’s wish will come true, albeit, through the good offices of another of Ranbir Kapoor’s close director-friends.
Confirming her presence in Ayan Mukerji’s super-hero film with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt says, “Yes, I am doing Ayan Mukerji’s film with Ranbir Kapoor. We begin at the end of the year.”
