If the one thing Bollywood is famous for apart from its superstars is its romantic movies. And when one talks about romance, it goes without saying that the first name that pops up in your mind is Shah Rukh Khan. And the next name, of course, has to be filmmaker Karan Johar. And why not? The man has given gems like Kuch Kuch Hota Hai and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil to name a few.
Adding more stars to his romantic film genre, Johar, a few weeks back, has announced another romantic film ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’.
The film will star Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt. The duo will be seen romancing each other.
Recently, the musical rights of the film have been sold. And Ranveer-Alia will be seen singing a song in the film.
Pritam Chakraborty will be the composer
A report by Bollywood Hungama suggests, Karan has sold the musical rights of this film to the legendary music company Saregama.
He has joined hands with Saregama for the music of this film. Pritam Chakraborty will be composing the music of the film.
The high point is that Ranveer will also be seen showcasing his singing talent on screen, but it will be completely different from his rap in ‘Gully Boy’. Alia will also lend her voice to the song.
Alia has sung songs for ‘Udta Punjab’ and ‘Highway’
Alia’s fans must be knowing that this is not the first time that the actress will give voice to a song in a film. Earlier she has shown her magical voice in ‘Highway’ and ‘Udta Punjab’. Only time will tell what magic will she spread this time on screen.

Karan said this about the deal with Saregama
Karan has shared his experience regarding this deal.
He said, “To me, this is more than a strategic union of two cinematic entities, but one that I am emotionally invested in as well. Saregama and Dharma have a relationship that dates to the early 90s when we came together for the film Gumrah, and then in 1998 for the musical hit Duplicate.”
Karan’s ‘Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani’ bears a resemblance to a musical.
Ranveer and Alia will play Rocky and Rani
Legendary actors like Shabana Azmi, Dharmendra and Jaya Bachchan will also be seen in this film. Jaya will be seen playing a negative character.
This will be the first time that Jaya is playing a negative role in her career. She will be seen playing Ranveer’s grandmother in the film. Interestingly, Jaya’s daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will also be seen in a negative avatar in the upcoming film ‘Ponniyin Selvan’.
Ranveer and Alia will be playing the title Rocky and Rani in this film.
Karan will return to direction after five years
The film will mark Karan’s return to direction after five years. Prior to this, he directed Ranbir Kapoor starrer ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ in 2016.
Shabana Azmi and Dharmendra will also be seen together in the film for the second time after ‘Mardon Wali Baat’ in 1988. Shabana and Dharmendra will play the role of Aaliya’s grandparents.
Jaya has previously worked with Karan in the hit films ‘Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham’ and ‘Kal Ho Naa Ho’.
