Alia Bhatt is one of the most talented actresses that Bollywood boasts of today. After impressive performances in movies like Highway and Udta Punjab, without a doubt most filmmakers and actors want to work with this rising beauty. However, there is one actor who refused a film because Alia was in it! The well-known actor is none other than Emraan Hashmi. Though this news has taken the media world by storm, the reason behind this shocking move of Emraan definitely has a point.
Emraan Refuses To Be Cast Opposite Alia Bhatt Due To Family Ties
Rumour has it that a very big-budget Bollywood movie was offered to the Raaz Reboot actor. But the fact that his role was opposite Alia Bhatt made him rethink and eventually reject the offer. It is no news that Hashmi is related to Mahesh Bhatt from his mother’s side. Now since Alia is Mahesh Bhatt’s daughter, she is technically Emraan Hashmi’s cousin. Hence, the actor refused to work with his cousin since the movie was a romantic comedy.
Earlier, many such famous Bollywood bhai-behen jodis have refused to work together in films. Arjun Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor are cousins. Though they have always maintained a very cordial relation between themselves, the audiences might never get to see the two of them on screen together. Same goes for Ranbir Kapoor, Kareena Kapoor, and Karisma Kapoor. Ranbir has also seemed distant with his cousins and will probably never work with them in the future.
Hashmi And Bhatt Are Cousins
On the work front, Emraan just had his recent release, Raaz Reboot, which failed to impress audiences. The Jannat actor is now concentrating on the filming schedule of Milan Luthria’s Baadshaho, with Ajay Devgn. Meanwhile, Alia Bhatt’s next release is Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi, with Shah Rukh Khan. She then will be gearing up for the sequel of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania, titled Badrinath Ki Dulhania.
