Has Alia Bhatt Lost Bhansali’s Next To Karan Johar?

Sanjay Leela Bhansali is gearing up to direct his  next  venture.And   it is most likely that he will be working with Deepika Padukone again  for  the  fourth time.

There was talk of  Alia Bhatt stepping into  Bhansali territory.And both the   director and the actress were very keen on the creative  alliance.  But then Karan  Johar who has always carried a  chip on his shoulder regarding the epic vision of Bhansali’s cinema, decided to do a costume drama  Kalank , a la Bhansali, for the  first time.

He naturally wanted  Alia to be  part  of his epic dream.

Says a  source  close to the development, “Much as Alia would love to be a Sanjay Leela Bhansali heroine—and who wouldn’t want to work with the master creator?—her first priority  is Karan Johar whom she considers a  father figure. The minute Karan  initiated  the  Kalank project , Alia abandoned all plans to work with Bhansali, at least for now.”

This is  the second time  things haven’t worked  out between Alia and Bhansali. Several years ago when Alia was  barely 11, she was offered the role of a child bride in Bhansali’s Hamari Jaan Ho Tum. But  the project never  got off the ground.
