Sriram Raghavan, the director of Badlapur, is all set to direct a thriller, and has decided to rope in Akshay Kumar and Alia Bhatt in the lead roles. The movie, would be based on a novel written by Sheeja Jose titled, 'Gone With The Bullet'.
The bubbly young actress, Alia Bhatt, would be seen romancing older men on-screen in 2016. First, she was casted alongside Shahrukh Khan in Gauri Shinde's next, and now she might bag the role opposite Akshay Kumar for Sriram's next.
Author Sheeja Jose, spoke to a leading daily and was quoted as saying,
"It (the script) took me two years to complete, and when things didn't fall in place with Sujoy, I turned the script into a book. The story follows an 18-year-old girl who falls in love with a 40-something assassin."
Sheeja further commented,
"I think Sriram will agree that Akshay Kumar would be perfect as the brooding, dark assassin and Alia Bhatt as the new-age girl in love. It's a hatke romance against the backdrop of bulletts."
So Alia Bhatt would play the role of an 18 year old girl who falls in love with a 40 year old assassin, played by Akshay Kumar.
