Mumbai: “Ek ladka aur ek ladki kabhi dost nahin ho sakte,” went the Mohnish Bahl line from the film Maine Pyar Kiya. But the industry has time and again proved this wrong. For instance, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone were not just comfortable around each other in public, but also worked in two films after breaking up. Keeping in line with the thought are two young stars — Alia Bhatt and Sidharth Malhotra. The two have also decided to stay friends, after their alleged relationship went kaput, but aren’t going out of their way for it. While the two actors seemed comfortable in each other’s presence last week at Shah Rukh Khan’s party at his Alibaug farmhouse, Alia even went to see Sidharth’s film Ittefaq at a Mumbai multiplex.
“Alia is a very sensible actress. She knows that if there is a good project that comes up that requires them to star opposite each other, she will pick it up and work like a true professional. This generation is very different from the actors of yore, who did not want to get into an uncomfortable situation. Times have changed and so have these young stars,” informs a trade source.
