Alia Bhatt is apparently the frontrunner to reprise stepsister Pooja’s role in the remake of Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin.
The Bhatts are known to be a close-knit family. What better way for Pooja Bhatt than to show her love for stepsister Alia by wishing to cast her in the remake of one of the most iconic films of her acting career, Dil Hai Ke Manta Nahin!.
According to reports, actress-turned-filmmaker Pooja has decided to announce the project on her father Mahesh Bhatt’s 64th birthday this month. A source says, “People say they find a lot of similarities between Pooja and Alia. In fact, even Karan Johar was heard saying so. And that’s one of the reasons why Pooja decided to cast Alia in her remake.”
Now that Pooja has found someone to step into her own shoes, we wonder who will play Aamir Khan’s character? Another source says, “Imran Khan has been approached for the role, apart from Ranbir Kapoor. After all, Imran is Aamir’s nephew. He could well be playing his Maamu jaan’s role. Given that Aamir’s character held a lot of authority, the makers will be looking for an established actor to play the role.”
