He further added, ''But since both these actors are close to home, I would not like to proclaim from the rooftops just yet that it's a go-go till they officially sign the contract."

It is surely a good news for all those, who were shocked to read about Hrithik Roshan and Alia Bhatt's pairing in the movie, as the age difference between the two is 20 years.
