Queen is one film that I can watch every single day and still not get bored! So you can imagine how eagerly I am awaiting its director, Vikas Bahl‘s next release, Shandaar. Moreover, it’s based on a destination wedding and I LOVE shaadis! Lastly, it features one of my favourite actresses, Alia Bhatt opposite Bollywood hottie, Shahid Kapoor! And the two cuties look super stunning together. Since I’m already in love with this film, I was going through a few interviews of Sasha and Alia that they had given post signing the project. And guess what I found? (I am sure a lot of you guys already know about it, but there must be some of you who are unaware of this!) Alia had a massive crush on her Shandaar co-star while growing up.
It was a childhood crush. I was 10 when I saw Ishq Vishq and for an actor to be so good in those days meant a lot to an impressionable girl like me. I thoroughly enjoyed my shooting. It was my longest stint outside India. We were shooting in Leeds and Poland for 45 days. But it was amazing.
Apparently, she had watched it at Gaiety Galaxy and she has been in love with the actor ever since. Naturally, she was ecstatic when she started working opposite Shahid. I guess I will be equally ecstatic when I see this duo on screen together. JUST. CAN’T. WAIT.
