Ali Zafar and Fawad Khan are on a roll in Bollywood. First Fawad was roped in alongside Alia Bhatt in the upcoming film Kapoor and Sons and now the Bollywood starlet will share screenspace with the Pakistani singer.

Ali’s manager confirmed to The Express Tribune, that the Pakistani singer will be seen in the Shah Rukh-Alia starrer. What’s more? He will be romancing the young star in the film.

The film’s star cast also includes Rang De Basanti actor Kunal Kapoor in Gauri Shinde’s latest directorial.

It’s official: Karan Johar brings together Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt!

In an interview with Pinkvilla, SRK had spilled the beans on his role in the upcoming film and said, “It is not a typical love story nor is there a hero role but I find Gauri’s filmmaking interesting. I may have a lesser part — not in terms of timing on screen but as a lover — but it’s an interesting role.”

Shooting for the film began Jan 21st. Film’s director Shinde and co-producer KJo could hardly contain their excitement.

Neither could Alia

Film with Alia not a ‘typical love story’, says Shah Rukh

The starlet just finished wrapping up her shoot for Kapoor and Sons alongside Pakistani heartthrob Fawad Khan, only to be wooed by Pakistani rock star Ali Zafar, and let’s not forget, Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan.

    With all due respect the man commands unprecedented respect in Pakistan. It might be a couple of releases in India but he is already an acclaimed tv and film actor in Pakistan. Those who understand the art of acting consider him the next big thing. His good looks are an added charm. We must learn to appreciate talent whether it is India or Pakistan or anywhere else in the world. Recommend

    Fawad Khan I agree is some talent. He has been around for over 5 years in this field. India is lucky to have him. There are very few upcoming good faces and actors in this region. He is one of them. Recommend

    You Repeatedly refe to Aalia as a starlet. Really? She has had several big hits as a solo heroine. Student of the Year, 2 States, Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, Kapoor and Sons. Can you please tell me a single movie that either Ali Zafar or Fawad have given a hit as a solo hero? Recommend
