Buzz: Sri To Play Alia's Mom

Well, that's a spoiler for sure. But again, stories do make rounds even as a film's casting happens.

After playing Mom to Sajal Ali, yesteryears diva Sridevi is all set to play mom once again. This time, she will play mother to a girl closer home and it will be Alia Bhatt.

This Karan Johar's production had a tough time finding the right cast and the hunt was on for a very long time.

Finally, Sanjay Dutt and Sri will play the older couple while Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan will be playing the younger couple in KJO's film.

In fact, KJo being KJo, his first choice was Madhuri Dixit for the role. It is known that Sanjay was her ex-beau and Karan thought of a casting coup of sorts.

For Madhuri, it would have been a perfect role as her last film released three years back and her earlier film is now seven years old.

But Madhuri promptly refused to do the film and the role went to the 'now' mom Sridevi. Her reason was that she did not want to play mom to 24-year-old Alia.

Well, for Madhuri who is 50 herself, a little math would have come handy.
