Alia Bhatt is undoubtedly one of the most adorable actresses in Tinsel town right now! The 24 year old young diva gave a series of successful films like Udta Punjab, Dear Zindagi and Badrinath Ki Dulhania. After celebrating the success of all this she is now taking a sabbatical of six whole months before we will see her in Ranbir Kapoor starrer flick Dragon. But here’s the interesting piece of news! We may soon find Alia Bhatt down in the south film industry romancing Akhil Akkineni, son of the superstar Nagarjuna! But conditions apply! It is someone else who will decide whether Alia Bhatt will do this film or not. No, it’s not her dad Mahesh Bhatt!

According to the reports in Midday, Akhil Akkineni is very much keen to have her on board for his upcoming Telugu film. The film is yet to go on floors and hence the search for the lead actresses was going on thoroughly. While the makers were initially searching for a South Indian actress itself, Akhil wanted a Bollywood face opposite him. Thus his star daddy Nagarjuna met Alia’s mentor in B-town, Karan Johar and is in talks with him about the same. There is also a buzz that Akhil may want to join the Bollywood bandwagon soon. Is this why his papa met KJo? We don’t know yet what is being finalised: Alia’s south debut or Akhil’s Bolly debut! Earlier, Alia was seen playing a Tamil girl in ‘2 states’ film which was amazing!

Meanwhile Karan Johar has been mentoring Alia and this is how it is going to be it seems! In his recent blog post he had written, ” When it came to Alia, I wasn’t even talking to Mahesh Bhatt! I’ve even gone on record saying we had issues. We had auditioned 5,000 people and she was one of them. If there was anyone better than Alia Bhatt, she would have been in the movie, but there wasn’t. She just stood out. Maybe her name played a role in why, but I think her body of work already proves that’s not it.” Also Read - Gangubai Kathiawadi Starring Alia Bhatt in Trouble: Kamathipura Residents Hold Protests For Hurting Sentiments, Call It 'Shameful'
