While many rumours and speculations are on the rise about the upcoming films from Dharma Productions, the latest one is that Karan Johar has decided to sign his ‘students’ for his next. Apparently, Karan Johar has plans to produce a film which will be helmed by Shakun Batra and from what we hear, the untitled film will star Alia Bhatt along with Sidharth Malhotra and Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Afzal Khan.
Karan Johar recently took to Twitter to announce the new project and maintained, “Rarely does a filmmaker write a super script in 2 months….@shakunbatra’s new family film just got greenlit and cast! Details coming up….” Prior to this, there were also rumours that Fawad was constantly spotted around Dharma Productions because he was to sign Karan’s directorial Ae Dil Hai Mushkil opposite Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. However, now it is being said that the role in question was just a cameo and Dharma wanted to sign Fawad for a full fledged role. On the other hand, it is a well known fact that Karan Johar is the mentor for Alia and Sidharth and hence he has decided to bring their chemistry back on screen after their act in their debut film Student Of The Year.
When contacted, Apoorva Mehta, CEO of Dharma Productions, he refused to comment on the same.
