Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan are all set to join hands for another film after their last successful film Dear Zindagi performed well at the box office. Alia and SRK will come together as actor and producer since SRK's production house Red Chillies will be producing the film titled as Darling. It'll be a mother and daughter story where Alia will be in the lead. A source told a leading entertainment website that Alia has done a script reading session and she has quite liked the film.
"The entire film is developed by Red Chillies and was narrated to Alia sometime back and she loved it and instantly came on board the film," told the source. Adding further, "The film rides on a formidable ensemble fronted by Alia, with actors like Shefali Shah, Vijay Varma and Roshan Mathew on board. It is said to be a quirky story about an endearing mother – daughter duo, played by Alia and Shefali, who are navigating through crazy circumstances in life. It’s set in Mumbai against the backdrop of a middle-class family and traces the lives of two women, as they find courage and love in exceptional circumstances,” the source added.
"In-fact, the movie is gearing up for a release this year itself. The pre-production work is going on full swing, and the team is all ready to take it on floors very soon in Mumbai," the source concluded.
