Shahid Kapoor and Alia Bhatt won hearts with their incredible performances in their 2016 hit Udta Punjab. The film had Shahid playing the role of a Punjabi Rockstar and Alia as a Bihari girl.

They both won several accolades for their work and at the recently held Big Zee Entertainment Awards Shahid made an interesting revelation. As per a leading daily, he stated that he was the one who felt Alia will be perfect for the role. Sasha also revealed that he cleverly passed on the script to her. 

The Rangoon actor added that Alia took one year to say yes to the film. It was due to her busy schedule as she was shooting back-to-back for several films. But Shahid waited patiently for Alia to come on board.

When Alia was asked about it, she stated, "It was one of the toughest roles of my career."

Meanwhile, Shahid has headed for a vacation with wife Mira Rajput and daughter Misha Kapoor. His baby girl is all set to turn one on August 26 and he decided to celebrate while holidaying abroad.

On the work front, Shahid will next be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati, where he will play the role of Raja Rawal Ratan Singh. The film also stars Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh in the leads. It is slated to release on November 17, 2017.

Coming to Alia, the talented actor is currently shooting for Raazi being helmed by Meghna Gulzar. The film is an adaptation of book Calling Sehmat written by Harinder Sikka. It also stars Vicky Kaushal as Alia's husband. The film will hit the screens on May 11, 2018.

"Stay in sync with the latest and hottest" & "SUBSCRIBE TO PINKVILLA"


The biggest miscast of the decade! The only reason Alia gets roles like UP and Highway is because of Nepotism! Her caliber as an actor in no way justifies her being cast for such roles! She's a below average halwa actor! PV please post. People should know the truth!

wooh this dude has some issues!! no wonder he has never been the quintessential leading man !

Be thankful, its her and the script worked for Udta and not your over acting.

He is very jealous that he is also trying to compete with actresses now a days. First Kareena & now this.

Didn't Alia say that a married co-star of hers used to hit on her?It must have been Shahid.

It's Ok Bro she gave you credit for the Script to be send to her, Aab kya jaan lega bachchi kaa :P

Why does Shahid constantly talk about Alia
