Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt are not romancing in Gauri Shinde’s next film. In fact, we can finally reveal the mystery which has left the fans fogged till now -- what exactly is Shah Rukh Khan doing in the film? Well, he is playing Alia’s love guru even as the petite actress juggles attentions of four handsome hunks in the film.
According to a leading magazine, the 23-year-old actress will be wooed by Aditya Roy Kapur, Ali Zafar, Kunal Kapoor and Angad Bedi in the film. She will play a filmmaker whose experiences with all these men shape her life and work. SRK will be a man who helps Alia figure out how to find love in her life. While it is a key role, it’s nothing near the romantic lead that he was earlier assumed to be.
This is Shah Rukh and Alia’s first film together. The announcement of the film was met with scepticism because of the huge age difference between the two stars. Shah Rukh had said then, “I Iike working with women, so I am doing Gauri Shinde’s film with Alia Bhatt as my co-star. That is not a typical love story or a hero role but I find Gauri’s filmmaking interesting. I may have a lesser part to be not in terms of timing on screen but it’s an interesting role.”
