|The race begins! Two starlets of Bollywood are said to be neck and neck for the lead role in the Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin remake. If one is the Student Of The Year cutie Alia Bhatt, the other is the Aashiqui 2 gal Shraddha Kapoor. Now it is to be seen in whose favour will the scale tip?
The Bhatts want their beti Alia Bhatt to play the lead in the remake of the 1991 hit Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin to be co-produced under their banner, while Bhushan Kumar is keen to rope in Shraddha Kapoor for the film.
“Shraddha is like Bhushan’s baby, having worked in his super hit Aashiqui 2 recently. But it becomes big news if Alia gets to act in it. Right now both Bhushan and Mahesh are taking a creative call as to which actress will suit the role best and they will go along with that,” a source is quoted as saying.
Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin, starring Pooja Bhatt and Aamir Khan was a big hit at the BO. The romantic story, an unofficial remake of the 1934 Hollywood film It Happened One Night was laced with good music, and was co-produced by T-Series and the Bhatts. Thus, both the production houses are excited to collaborate on DHKMN remake.
However, producer Bhushan is not willing to divulge much about the female lead of the movie that will star Emraan Hashmi in the role of an unapologetic rake. The producer is happy to be associated with Vishesh Films again after giving films like Aashiqui, Dil Hai Ki Manta Nahin (original one) and Aashiqui 2.
According to Bhushan, he is just trying to continue the magic and the relationship his father had with the Bhatts. As Aashiqui 2 is so well-appreciated by the audiences, and has done extremely well at the BO, Bhushan is hoping to repeat the same success story with DHKMN2.
So, who do you think will suit the role of a rich spoiled girl running away from her home and finding love in the process? Alia Bhatt or Shraddha Kapoor!
