Fawad Khan starred opposite Alia Bhatt in Kapoor and Sons last year, which went on to become a huge hit. Not to mention, the duo looked fabulous on screen. Keeping the Pakistani connection going, according to sources, Alia Bhatt’s next project involves her being married to a Pakistani army officer.
With the young actress just having returned from vacation, reports suggest she has been approached for a lead role in Meghna Gulzar’s untitled movie, which is based the thriller book Sehmat by Harinder Sikka. Karan Johar, being a big fan of Alia, will co-produce the film. It will be set in 1970, on the eve of the 1971 Indo-Pak War. Bhatt will play a resident of Kashmir, who’s married to a Pakistani officer.
Alia Bhatt, daughter of Mahesh Bhatt, a man known for giving many Pakistani artists a break in Bollywood, has been a strong supporter of positive civil relations between the two countries. We hope this film is able to send a message of hope, ultimately contributing to improve relations between the two nations.
