Director Gauri Shinde has added two more cast members to her upcoming film. After Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt, the makers have roped in Kunal Kapoor and Pakistani actor Ali Zafar.
Ali and Kunal will romance Alia in Gauri’s untitled film. Ali and Kunal will play important roles and will be Alia’s suitors at various points in the film, Filmfare reports.
The lead cast of Gauri’s directorial film was incomplete, as the storyline of the film is about three men in Alia’s life. But it looks like now the lead cast is finalised with Ali, Kunal and Shah Rukh.
Shah Rukh had earlier confirmed that he will romance Alia in the film, but he also said that his screen time as a lover will be less. Rumours were also doing the rounds that Shah Rukh is just doing a cameo in the film, but the actor rubbished that reports as well.
“And 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 as a lover but it’s an interesting role. Then I will have to get one commercial vehicle for the company also, I have not yet decided,” he told Pinkvilla in an interview.
Meanwhile, the makers of the film have not made an official announcement regarding Ali and Kunal romancing Alia in the film. But if the rumours turn out to be true then fans will see three fresh pairings in 2017.
