Alia-Sid get preference over Sara-Ishaan

Shahid Kapoor’s half-brother Ishaan Khattar and Saif Ali Khan’s daughter Sara were all geared up for their debut film, which is to be directed by Mohit Suri and produced by Karan Johar (Mohit Suri to launch Shahid’s half-brother Ishaan and Saif’s daughter Sara, May 16).

But looks like the ‘It’ couple of the moment – Sidharth Malhotra and Alia Bhatt – have poured cold water on their plans.

SpotboyE has it that after completing Half Girlfriend, Mohit will be moving on to Aashiqui 3 with Sid and Alia.

The timing is right – after all, Sid has earned a lot of praise for his performance in Kapoor & Sons. As for Alia, everyone has been waiting for her to work in a home production and with Aashiqui 3, she will finally be part of a Vishesh film.

But this, in effect, means that the Ishaan-Sara launchpad will have to wait until Mohit wraps up Aashiqui 3.

Producer Mukesh Bhatt confirmed the development, saying, “Mohit will be directing Aashiqui 3 after Half Girlfriend.”

While the producer denied that Sonam Kapoor was ever in contention for the female lead of Aashiqui 3, Bhatt added, “Yes, Hrithik Roshan was the first choice for the film. But things did not work out.”
