Alia Bhatt signed by Mani Ratnam?

Apparently the filmmaker was impressed with Alia’s performance in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania

Alia Bhatt, who gave three back to back hit films after making her Bollywood debut in the year 2012 with Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year has been signed by ace filmmaker Mani Ratnam, we hear. If a recent report is anything to go by then the filmmaker was mighty impressed with Bhatt girl’s performance in Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, which also had Varun Dhawan as the male lead. Well, if the report is indeed true, then we certainly can’t wait to watch Alia in a Mani Ratnam film.

Talking about her other upcoming films, the actress will be next seen in Vikas Bahl’s Shandaar opposite Shahid Kapoor. Ayan Mukerji, who last directed Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani will direct Alia for his next film in which Ranbir Kapoor will be paired opposite her. Apart from these films, Alia has teamed up with her cousin director Mohit Suri for a film in which she will be seen playing a serious role for the first time.
