Hote hote pyaar ho gaya! And yet again, it's the star kids in the thick of action. Inner circles of Bollywood are abound with gossips around Alia Bhatt (Mahesh Bhatt's daughter) and Varun Dhawan (David Dhawan's son) to be an item. Even though the first shot of their debut movie STUDENT OF THE YEAR is yet to be canned, sources claim that the two indeed have eyes only for each other.
Says an industry observer, "It looks like the Karan Johar effect, what with people either bringing their love on the sets or already being in love with each other. Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor enjoyed their courtship period with KURBAAN. Later Sonam Kapoor and her director Puneet Malhotra too were said to be have got rather close to each other during I HATE LUV STORYS."
One wonders though how a new love story would be written on the sets of STUDENT OF THE YEAR, the shooting of which would kick start in Summer 2011. Since Karan always strives to have a comfortable fun filled working environment on his sets, he can well be expected to go easy on the love birds.
"Unlike Sanjay Leela Bhansali who is dead serious about his cast and their conduct when he launches them (remember how he ensured a certain discipline in place during SAAWARIYA, the launchpad of Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor?), Karan is far more easy going," he continues, "As long as Alia and Varun are delivering the desired results, he won't be having any issues with the relationship they carry in their personal lives. He is the last person to be involved in any such personal matters."
One wonders though what the other lead in the film, Siddharth Malhotra, currently thinking. After all he is missing out on all the action which is currently surrounding Alia and Varun.
