The director is keen to cast Alia Bhatt opposite Ranbir Kapoor in his next.
Luv Ranjan, who’s managed to rope in Ranbir Kapoor and Ajay Devgn for his next project, reportedly has his sights set on another A-lister. We hear that he’s keen on getting Alia Bhatt on board as well. And unsurprisingly, Ranbir’s in agreement.
Not long ago, Shraddha Kapoor, who was in Mumbai for the shooting of Batti Gul Meter Chalu, made a quick stop at Ajay Devgn’s office in an attempt to be cast in the film.
But it seems her efforts have been in vain, and the role has been offered to Alia.
“Most film scripts are written with certain stars in mind. Having said that, directors also have a vision of who they want to cast. Today, Alia is a big star. If you want to cast her, you need to sign her around the same time as the male stars. If the role is not that important, it is highly unlikely that Alia will sign on the dotted line, even if it means losing out on quality time with beau Ranbir,” says a source.
Meanwhile, rumours are doing the rounds that Alia plans to take time off work to fly to Paris and spend time with Ranbir’s family from July 6 to 9 for Neetu Singh’s birthday.
Ranbir has also taken a week off after the release of his film Sanju to be with his mother in the French capital.
