Alia Bhatt to play lead in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next?

Bollywood’s svelte diva Alia Bhatt has triggered wild speculations on social media after her .secret’ meeting with mercurial storyteller Sanjay Leela Bhansali goes public.

 

According to the movie industry grapevines, the duo chatted for hours, igniting rumors of varied shades – some even contemplated that the ‘Raazi’ actress is all set to be part of SLB’s next venture. A source close to both said that if materialized, this would definitely be a game-changer for both – Aliaa as well as the SLB.

 

A source close to the diva said, “Alia is at that crossroads of her acting career where she needs thrust to reach the top. Only a story-teller of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s stature can give her career the required push to enable her to attain superstardom.”

 

‘Raazi’ that hit theatres on May 11, this year, has placed the actress in the league of A-Listers. She grabbed media attention ever since and movie pundits shower their praise for her immaculate performance in the movie.

 

Produced jointly by Junglee Pictures and Dharma Production, ‘Raazi’ portrays love in the backdrop of high tension, war-torn ambiance of 1971 Indo-Pak conflict, espionage remaining the core issue. An espionage movie, bubbling with patriotism, has successfully enticed audiences of varied tastes. The movie is a blend of romance, action and betrayal.

 

Given her-no-holds-barred performance in the movie – the actress further likens to hone up her acting prowess despite her stellar performance in ‘Badrinath ki dulhania’.  And who’s more robust than the seasoned Bhansali to prepare roadmap for her superstardom?
