Film­maker Gauri

Shinde (left) will soon start work­ing on her sec­ond di­rec­to­rial pro­ject star­ring ac­tors Shah Rukh Khan (right) and

Alia Bhatt (be­low right) in the lead roles. The di­rec­tor says that the story will not show con­ven­tional ro­mance. Gauri, 41, whose de­but film, English Vinglish (2012), was widely ap­pre­ci­ated, wants to main­tain the sus­pense on the chem­istry her lead ac­tors will be shar­ing in the yet un­ti­tled pro­ject to be pro­duced by Karan Jo­har. “Let’s wait and watch. It won’t be as typ­i­cal as one ex­pects — a man and woman to be to­gether,” she says.

Alia, 22, had ear­lier said that she feels in­tim­i­dated and ner­vous act­ing with Shah Rukh, and Gauri feels that it is a good thing. “I think it is good to be in­tim­i­dated. We should all be in­tim­i­dated with each other,” she says.

The one film old di­rec­tor says that she finds her­self for­tu­nate to get 49-year-old SRK and Alia on board for her film. “I don’t know how it hap­pened...I wrote the script and I got lucky with the cast­ing.”

The pro­ject is ex­pected to go on floors soon.
