The movie is in its pre-production stage, revealed its co-producer Karan Johar.
"@gauris film with @iamsrk and @aliaa08 commences principal photography middle of January! Pre production is on full steam now! Exciting," Johar wrote on his Twitter page.
Alia Bhatt, 22, re-tweeted Karan Johar's tweet.
The yet-untitled movie is being produced by SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment, Johar's Dharma and Hope Productions.
Shinde, who is married to director R Balki, shot to fame with her debut 2012 movie "English Vinglish", starring Sridevi.
Shinde said a few months ago that the upcoming film will not have "typical romance".
