Actors Sushant Singh Rajput and Alia Bhatt have been in the news for quite some time now. While there have been rumours of the duo pairing up together for the first time for a film, nothing concrete has been revealed.
However, according to a report in a leading daily, both Sushant and Alia will be finally coming together for producer Dinesh Vijan’s film ‘Raabta’, which is slated to go on-floors from July 2015. In fact, if the buzz is to be believed, Dinesh, who has been a producer for films like ‘Love Aaj Kal’, ‘Cocktail’, ‘Happy Ending’, ‘Finding Fanny’, ‘Badlapur’ among others, will turn director for ‘Raabta’.
Interestingly, Dinesh wanted to direct his favourite actor Saif Ali Khan in his directorial debut along with Parineeti Chopra, but since things didn’t materialize, the project was shelved.
Ask Dinesh about his directorial debut and he says, “I had an idea of directing last year itself, but that time I was producing four movies. I was silly to think I will direct a film. I don't whether I am good at it or no, but I think I can produce a movie, hence I am now trying my hand at direction. Next month I will look at it (direction). That’s all I can reveal.”
Adds a source, “Dinesh has finished writing the script of his film, but he is waiting for ‘Badlapur’ to release. Once that is over, he will completely focus on it. In fact, Dinesh has already locked the cast it and he hopes to start the shoot on time. It is again a love story and it talks about Kalyug. Something like agar yeh duniya main bhi Romeo-Juliet Milenge toh unhe kaise malum hoga ki they are made for each other.”
Well, we can’t quite wait for this one!
