A while back there were rumours that Esha Gupta and Alia Bhatt were both in the running for a lead role in director Mohit Suri’s next.
The film stars newbie Siddhath Malhotra. So much so that it perhaps had made the two actresses a tad uncomfortable in each other’s presence at a photo shoot for a magazine.
Sid had been Alia’s co-star in her debut Bollywood film.
A source close to Esha says, “Esha has not been offered this particular role. She has no ill feelings towards Alia.”
