Mumbai: Alia Bhatt who was last scene in Kalank, is gearing up for her next. The 26-year-old actress can’t wait to start her next project with the celebrated filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali (SLB). The actress has joined Salman Khan in Bhansali’s upcoming epic romance drama that will go on the floors soon.
Reminiscing an incident from her childhood, Alia shares her excitement of working with SLB as she shares, “I am very excited. I remember when I was nine years old, I walked into his office and I told him that I will work with him and that is happening now. I didn’t think it would be this combination of Salman and SLB together.”
She further adds, “I hoped to work with Salman Khan someday; who doesn’t want to work with him? But I never thought it would be Sanjay sir and Salman Khan together. I can’t wait to start this project. They are like a magical combination together. At the moment, I can’t reveal much about the character.”
The film also marks the reunion of Salman and Bhansali after 19 years since Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
Meanwhile, Alia is also excited about making her entry into the digital space. “Digital is growing and it is great. There have been talks about a couple of things but nothing is totally confirmed or greenlit yet. I would be excited to do something in digital,” says Alia.
