You guys might be wondering what's the connection between Alia Bhatt, Vaani Kapoor, Aamir Khan and Aditya Chopra but we've got three words for you, Thugs of Hindostan. You heard that right. Produced under Yash Raj banner, the film is being directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya (of Dhoom 3 fame) and stars Aamir and Amitabh Bachchan together for the very first time. However, even before the film has gone on floors, differences have crept up between Khan and producer Aditya Chopra. We had earlier reported how Chopra wanted his favourite Yash Raj girl, Vaani Kapoor to come onboard for the film. However, we've learnt now that Aamir is keen on having Alia Bhatt in this project.
As reported by Filmfare, Aamir is impressed by Miss Bhatt and is keen on having her in Thugs of Hindostan. Their source has revealed that the 51 year old actor has recommended her name for the project. But it's not gonna be easy for Bhatt to become a part of the film as Aditya Chopra is still persistent on having Vaani in the film. The film is supposedly going to be quite an expensive film, as our sources have confirmed the same. We can already see how Adi is mighty happy with his YRF girl, Vaani. They've worked together in Befikre and that itself explains why Chopra wants her in this big budget film. But knowing that Aamir is one stubborn actor, will he be able to convince Chopra to bring Alia onboard for this project?

Already we're seeing how Alia is extending her arms to reaching newer heights in her career graph. Alia Bhatt has created a brand of her own as she doesn't need to bank on any actor's name to sell a film. Just as her Dear Zindagi co-star Shah Rukh Khan said, "She is too good too soon." We too agree with that statement. So without a doubt opportunities would flood by her doorstep, right? In fact, if the 23 year old actress bags this film, it would be too good to be true. Already Thugs of Hindostan has two powerful actors such as Aamir and Amitabh. With inclusion of Alia in this project, the actress can strike off Shah Rukh and Aamir's name from the list of the three big Khans in terms of work!

The plotline of Thugs of Hindostan is quite intriguing as it is in similar lines with Pirates of the Caribbean. Although reports of the script undergoing change and matching to Matchstick Men also cropped up but no confirmation has been given on the same. For all we know, the film is about pirates and their adventurous voyage. Yes, the plot is super interesting and with Mr Perfectionist sailing in this project, could it be more exciting? But we'd definitely like to know who finally bags the coveted role to romance Aamir Khan, Alia Bhatt or Vaani Kapoor.
