Alia Bhatt to star in Gurinder Chadha’s next, backed by Disney?

Alia Bhatt has reportedly given the nod to work with Gurinder Chadha in a huge project backed by Disney.

Speculation is rife that the film will be an original musical inspired by a dynamic princess from Indian history. The film has been written by Chadha and screenwriter Paul Mayeda Berges.

A source told Mid-Day, “The two have been in talks for a while. The final casting will happen only after the script is developed, but Alia is among the top casting choices.”

Bhatt has her hands full currently with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Love & War’ opposite actor-husband Ranbir Kapoor and Vicky Kaushal. She is also working with Yash Raj Films on a female-centric spy-thriller.

The source adds, “After playing a singer in Bhansali’s period drama and an undercover agent in Rawail’s movie, a Disney princess will be a great addition to Alia’s repertoire. Leading the big-budget international project will also be a step forward towards making her presence felt in Hollywood after Heart of Stone [2023]. If things fall in place, she will kick off work with Gurinder in the second half of 2025.”
