The actor had a bitter breakup with Kareena Kapoor but over the years they have moved on and been rather friendly with each other, so much so that, the duo are starring together in the same movie now.
When Shahid Kapoor signed Abhishek Chaubey's upcoming film, he felt that Kareena would be apt for a pivotal role, "The role that Kareena plays, I felt it was perfect for her. In fact, I was a little scared of referring Kareena as I did not know how it would be perceived."
Not just Kareena, it was Shahid who referred Alia for the movie as well, he further added, "When I told Alia about it, I felt instinctively that she is as good an actor as she is a star and therefore she would understand what potential the content has. And she did."
"Actually, I thought of Kareena even before I thought of Alia. But with Kareena, things got delayed. Then I told Alia that there is this role which is yet not cast and if she would like to do this role. Then in the same month Kareena also heard it and agreed to do the film. So it just happened. And I felt very happy when it happened for I feel it is a very special film."
