Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page - AN­JURI NA­YAR SINGH

Ac­tor Alia Bhatt (right) can­not seem to get enough of her favourite su­per­hero, The Flash. Be­sides read­ing the comic books and watch­ing the show, Alia now has a name in mind for some­one who can play the su­per­hero if ever a Bol­ly­wood film is made on him. She feels that ac­tor

Varun Dhawan (far right), who she was last seen with in Humpty Sharma ki Dul­ha­nia (2014), would be apt for the role.

“If I had to cast an In­dian ac­tor for The Flash, I think it’ll be some­body who has a lot of energy and that would be Varun!” says Alia, who will soon be seen co-host­ing a show with film­maker Karan Jo­har. KJo, how­ever, says that he has another name in mind. “From Hindi cin­ema per­spec­tive, as Flash, I would to­tally cast Farhan Akhtar. I think no one runs like him, we all know that,” he says.

Alia and Jo­har have workd to­gether in the ac­tor’s de­but film Stu­dent Of The Year (2012), and Humpty Sharma Ki Dul­ha­nia. In fact, Jo­har has cast her in his next am­bi­tious pro­ject, Shud­dhi, too. And Alia says that she loves work­ing with Jo­har. “Work­ing with Karan is amaz­ing, just be­ing around him is amaz­ing. Be­cause we have such a beau­ti­ful re­la­tion­ship, it just comes across whether we’re in front of the cam­era or be­hind the cam­era. So we are just our­selves,” she says.
