EXCLUSIVE: Alia Bhatt & Kartik Aaryan in talks with Gunjan Saxena director Sharan Sharma for his next

Last year, Sharan Sharma made his directorial debut with the Janhvi Kapoor, Pankaj Tripathi and Angad Bedi starrer Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl. Inspired by a real story, the film revolved around an Indian Airforce pilot and was well received by the audience. As theatres were shut because of the Covid-19 pandemic, the film was released on Netflix. Now, Pinkvilla has learnt that Sharan has already started working on his next directorial outing. A source close to the development informs that the director has approached Kartik Aaryan and Alia Bhatt for the film. 

“Alia Bhatt and Kartik Aaryan are on top of Shahran’s wishlist. He has had a preliminary meeting with them for the film.However he is presently in the stage of locking the final script, after which he’lll have a few more meetings with the actors. The film is expected to roll by the end of the year,” informs a source close to the project. Like Gunjan Saxena: The Kargil Girl, this one too will be produced by Karan Johar. In the past, Sharan has even assisted on films like Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.

Earlier there were rumours that Kartik and Alia might collaborate for filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi. However, that collaboration didn’t work out. The role that was offered to Kartik is now reportedly being played by Shantanu Maheshwari. Meanwhile, Kartik has his hands full with Ram Madhvani’s Dhamaka, Collin D'Cunha’s Dostana 2 and Anees Bazmee’s Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. Alia will be seen in Gangubai Kathiawadi, SS Rajamouli’s RRR and Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra.
