Alia Bhatt- 2nd next choice of Rohit Shetty for Golmaal 4 after Kareena Kappor Khan and Deepika Padukone. Kareena is not available for the film as she is on maternity leave and Deepika is busy with upcoming movie Padmavati thus the film goes to Alia Bhatt.
Initially she seems very much interested in the film her manager even discussed date with Rohit Shetty. As the source says “Her business manager even met Rohit at his office and dates were discussed. All that remained was for her to sign the film.”
But suddenly she seems unavailable for the dates as according to source she is busy in shooting ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ and afterwards she has dates for her upcoming movie ‘Shiddat’. It seems a sudden change of mind.
Lead actress for Golmaal 4 is not decided yet. It will be finalized only after the release of Shivaay.
According to the source “It was put across to them that Alia was busy with Badrinath Ki Dulhania and was to sign another biggie by the end of the year and then start shooting for Abhishek Varman’s Shiddat with Varun Dhawan from March next year, so she didn’t have any dates for the Devgn starrer,”
Reasons revealing her denial would be her friendship with Karan Johar as he is the man who gives her the first break and because of the blast between Ajay Devgan and Karan Johar on the clash of ‘Shivaay’ and ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ it would be difficult for Alia to work with Ajay Devgan. Source reveals “Regardless of Karan asking her to be part of G4 or not, it was the only logical outcome. She owes her career to Karan and her loyalties lie with him. How could she work with Ajay after his clash with KJo went nuclear?,”
Let’s see who will be Rohit’s next choice after Bebo, Deepika and Alia.
