The film is a family drama and will be produced by Shakun Batra whose claim to fame was his film Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu featuring Imran Khan and Kareena Kapoor. Titled Kapoor and Sons, the film’s story is about a “modern family with a love triangle embedded in it”, tweeted KJo. The film will also feature Rishi Kapoor. According to entertainment website Bollywood Hungama, Rishi plays the grandfather while Sidharth Malhotra, Alia Bhatt and Fawad Khan will play Rishi’s grandchildren. The very important roles of Rishi’s son and daughter-in-law are yet to be cast. Reportedly, Shakun has been eager to do a film with Alia Bhatt after their last successful internet film venture, Alia Genius Of The Year. It was earlier being said that Sidharth, Alia and Fawad could be cast for the remake of Ram Lakhan which is to be directed by Rohit Shetty. Karan denied this as well on twitter:
While Rohit and I are extremely excited with the excitement RAM LAKHAN has generated….we would like to say…IT HAS NOT BEEN CAST!!! — Karan Johar (@karanjohar) March 25, 2015
