The two heartthrobs, who play brothers onscreen, are the latest BFFs in town.
Shakun Batra has cast Sidharth Malhotra, Fawad Khan and Alia Bhatt in his family drama Kapoor and Sons.
The film went on floors recently at a suburban studio. On day one there was not much action, except for a few light-hearted sequences, but plenty of interaction as the cast and crew got to know each other.
"While Alia and Sid started their careers together and have been dating for the last few months, Fawad is new to the set-up and Bollywood in general, this being only his second film after Khubsoorat. But Sid and he bonded like long-lost friends after they faced the camera for the first scene," said a source adding that Alia even praised Fawad on his performance in his Bollywood debut."
Incidentally, the two play brothers who fancy Alia in the emotional drama.
