Alia Bhatt and Ranveer Singh have proved themselves to be one of the most bankable pairs in Bollywood. They were previously paired in Gully Boy which was a great success and opened with collection of ₹194 million on the first day. Gully Boy grossed ₹1.66 billion (US$23 million) in India and $9.6 million (₹725.8 million) overseas, taking its worldwide gross to ₹2.38 billion (US$33 million). The film earned a total collection of Rs 379.02 crore at the box office and is the third highest-grossing Bollywood film of 2019.
Alia and Ranveer have now been paired again in Karan Johar directorial titled Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani. The upcoming love story marks the return of Karan Johar to direction after 5 years. Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi will play supporting roles in the movie.
The latest reports state that the lead pair of Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani will be flying to Moscow to shoot a song for their forthcoming biggie. Remo D’Souza will be choreographing the song for the film that features a star-studded cast and is written by Ishiita Moitra, Shashank Khaitan and Sumit Roy.
“Remo had choreographed Alia in her debut film, ‘Student Of The Year’ and they have had a long association. The team is excited to have him on board,” a source close to the film revealed.
The director claims that Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani isn’t a regular love story. The supporting characters played by Dharmendra, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi are also expected to be interesting.
Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani was announced in July and is scheduled for theatrical release in 2022.
