It remains to be seen if the movie will have Alia romancing SRK, something that she has said is not quite possible due to her age difference or it will have a more mature track. Whatever the story, this truly is the casting coup of the season. Gauri Shinde had made her directorial debut with Sridevi starrer ‘English Vinglish’.
