Bollywood gossip says actor Sidharth Malhotra has been cast in his fourth Karan Johar movie, and may also be joined by Pakistani star Fawad Khan and his co-Student Of The Year Alia Bhatt. KJo, however, says no cast announcement has been made yet. (Also Read: Karan Johar's Next Untitled Project is a Family Film)
Sidharth is believed to have been cast as one of the two male leads in director Shakun Batra film which will be produced by KJo. The film, title not revealed, reportedly tells the story of two brothers, one of who is gay. However, the director says this is conjecture as well.

Yesterday, Karan Johar announced the film on Twitter:
Sidharth, who made his debut in the KJo-directed Student Of The Year (2012), has also starred in the KJo-produced Hasee Toh Phasee (2014) and Brothers which is currently filming. Alia Bhatt is also a protege of sorts for Karan Johar - the former Student has starred in last year's Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania and 2 States, both produced by the filmmaker. Khoobsurat actor Fawad Khan, if he is cast, will be the only newbie among the usual suspects, so to speak.
