Filmmaker Karan Johar is so impressed with his protégé and his ‘Student of the Year’ heroine, Alia Bhatt, that he has signed her up for his upcoming production venture ‘Two States’.
‘Two States’ is a movie adaption of Chetan Bhagat’s famous novel of same name. The movie stars ‘Ishaqzaade’ star Arjun Kapoor as male lead.
The movie is directed by Abhishek Verman, who has also worked as a creative director in ‘Student of the Year’.
But it’s reported that Karan Johar will be making an official statement in regards to Alia Bhatt starring in the movie only after ‘Student of the Year’ releases.
Karan Johar and director Abhishek Verma have been searching for a lead actress for the movie for a long time now. It was initially reported that Asin was signed for the movie as they thought that she would be perfect to play a Tamilian Brahmin girl in the movie.
It remains to be seen if Alia Bhatt can pull off the role of a South Indian IIM graduate.
