Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt’s unusual casting in the upcoming next, that will be produced by Karan Johar (in association with SRK) and directed by ENGLISH VINGLISH maker Gauri Shinde, has certainly surprised one and all! While the makers haven’t revealed much beyond the lead actors, reports suggest that SRK and Alia are not romantically paired in the film (as he is too old for the young actress), it’s a story about love but it’s not a love-story.
The makers must be certainly raring to come out with further details about the film. Meanwhile, we have chalked out (weirdest plotlines & characterizations) as to how the Badshah of romance and Alia must/can be paired in this seemingly platonic story of love (although all in jest).
SRK an intelligent professor/mentor and Alia as dumb student: Much like their real life personas, it’s quite possible that Shah Rukh plays a sharp-witted coach or teacher or mentor, who guides a dull/dumb student like Alia in the film. And the duo develops a soft corner for each other.
Alia as a fan and Shah Rukh as a superstar: SRK may be gearing up for his upcoming biggie FAN (where he plays both – the superstar and a fan), but Gauri Shinde’s directorial might have Alia playing a die-hard fan of superstar Shah Rukh Khan’s character. And Alia is crazily in love with SRK, who seeks for his attention.
SRK plays a dangerous Don who kidnaps naive Alia: It’s also likely that Shah Rukh plays a deadly Don, who abducts a naïve Alia. Then, the twosome embarks on a train journey and what ensues is an unforgettable story of love.
Alia is specially abled patient cured by doctor SRK: King Khan plays an affable and mature doctor, who cures Alia’s illness and eventually starts liking her. Alia too becomes fond of him.
Alia plays the past life soulmate of Shah Rukh and takes a rebirth: Though it’s the most clichéd option to come up with, it’s somewhat possible that SRK’s beloved is reborn as Alia. And as Alia realizes about her love, her character bonds with that of SRK, who has been waiting for her.
