Aanand Rai’s film with Shah Rukh Khan, where he plays a midget is supposed to go on floors later this month. The sets have been erected in Mumbai’s Film City and after a lot of discussions, Deepika Padukone decided to opt out of the film.
It would have been an interesting thing to watch DP along with her arch rival Katrina Kaif in the film. But we have to wait for someone to make it happen now. Deepika walked out, citing date issues as she has to complete Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Padmavati which is due for a November 17 release this year.
There were several speculations about who Aanand is casting in Deepika’s place. And it seems we have the answer now. It will mostly be Alia Bhatt. Yes, it will be a three lead character film – played by Alia, SRK and Katrina. While Kat and SRK are already on board, Alia is the one joining them.
A picture of Alia with SRK and Aanand has now gone viral on the Internet and this only proves that Alia is mostly the one they are in talks with. Aanand approached Anushka too but she’s also occupied with her other projects.

Like they say, a picture can say a thousand words. Isn’t the girl with SRK bearing an uncanny resemblance to the Bhatt girl? Well, well, well…
