Not long ago, Emraan Hashmi was the Bhatt camp’s choice for a lead in many of their films. But after the speculated fallout between the actor and his mentors, it seems that Ali Fazal has become the Bhatts’ new favourite.
A source close to Ali tells us that even before he completed his first film under the banner, he was offered a second, which Pooja Bhatt (film-maker) is set to produce. "It was a big surprise for Ali to get back-to-back offers from the same production house. He didn’t think twice before accepting Pooja’s offer," says the insider.
When contacted, Ali confirms the news and says that he is overwhelmed to have gotten another movie from the same studio. He says, "The Bhatts gave me Karan Darra’s (director) film, which is being produced by Mukesh Bhatt. I have finished it. With them guiding me, I can’t wait to do Shagufta Rafique’s (director) next."
