It is going to be the casting coup….or should it be scoop?….of the year. Karan Johar’s two most favourite actors , his mentor-friend-muse-guide Shah Rukh Khan and his blue-eyed boy Ranbir Kapoorare all set to be cast together in Karan Johar’s next directorial venture.
The two actors have a long history with Karan. Shah Rukh is not only a very close friend of Johar, he starred in every single Karan Johardirectorial venture from Kuch Kuch Hota Hai to My Name Is Khanuntil there was a temporary rift in their relationship(for reasons we shall not go into over here)
Thereafter Karan made his first film without Shah Rukh Khan. It wasStudent Of The Year launching three newcomers Alia Bhatt, VarunDhawan and Sidharth Malhotra, now stars in their own right. Last year Karan Johar directed Ranbir in Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
Now bringing the two superstars together in one film is a master-stroke only Karan Johar can pull off.
Says a source close to Karan, “He decided he wanted to bring the two together not only because it made casting sense—it did, and how!—but also because he has an idea for a script where SRK and RK fit in perfectly.”
We can’t wait.
