We recently came across an announcement by filmmaker Karan Johar which stated that Alia Bhatt has been roped in for his next co-production directed by Gauri Shinde, which will also star Shah Rukh Khan. And now rumor has it that the Highway actress is in talks for yet another project by KJo. The movie is said to be helmed by the highly acclaimed ‘Lunchbox’ director Ritesh Batra.

If this project works, this Ritesh Batra film will be Alia’s fifth collaboration with Dharma Productions after her debut film Student of the Year, the forthcoming films; Shaandaar, Kapoor & Sons, Shuddhi and one film old director Gauri Shinde’s untitled film.

Presently Alia is gearing up for her upcoming release ‘Shaandaar’ co-starring Shaihid Kapoor and is also shooting for Kapoor & Sons’ with alleged beau Sidharth Malhotra and Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.
