The buzz is that Alia is likely to play dwarf with Shah Rukh Khan
Anand L. Rai’s film with Shah Rukh Khan has been in news for a long time now for its casting. Although the director is yet to make an official announcement of his actresses, it is said that Katrina Kaif is finalised to play one of leads and Alia too has been roped in to part of the film. A source says, “The makers have been in talks with Alia for a long time now. Deepika was earlier keen to do it but later she informed about her unavailability. So the next choice to play this role was Alia.”
It is said that Alia has liked the script and if things go well then she might play a dwarf like Shah Rukh’s character in the film. The actor has been preparing for his role of dwarf since past few weeks and he has clarified that it is not on lines of Kamal Haasan’s Appu Raja. Meanwhile, we have not seen many actresses have played such characters on screen. So Alia will have to do a lot of research if she takes on this role.
The film is slated to go on floor soon and is slated to release next year.
