Alia Bhatt about Shah Rukh Khan: He’s the magic and magician put together

Shah Rukh Khan’s stardom crossed Indian borders a long time ago and the superstar’s movies were celebrated in the country during those days. While he is still one of the biggest celebrities in India, his movies seem to have lost their edge when it comes to the box office. 

Alia Bhatt is a star who found massive box office success in her most recent movies , Gangubai Kathiawadi and RRR. The actor was asked if she has any advice for Shah Rukh, now that she seems to have cracked the box office code. 

Replying to Indian Express, Alia said, “He needs no advice. He’s the magic and magician put together. So I won’t give any advice to him, rather I’ll take advice from him on how magical he is.” 

Alia and Shah Rukh previously worked together in Gauri Shinde’s Dear Zindagi, where Alia played the lead and Shah Rukh had an extended cameo. 

While Alia’s Gangubai Kathiawadi and RRR crossed the Rs. 200 crore and Rs. 1000 crore marks respectively at the world wide box office, Shah Rukh Khan has not had the best of outings with his previous releases. He was last seen in Zero in 2018, which bombed at the box office. 

Shah Rukh is now ready to make his much-awaited return to the big screens after four years, and has three movies that could change his box office fortunes around. He has Yash Raj Films’ Pathan, Jawaan directed by Atlee Kumar and Rajkumar Hirani’s Dunki in the works. 

Alia on the other hand, is currently awaiting the release of her black comedy thriller Darlings, which starts streaming on Netflix from August 5. The actor also has Brahmastra Part One: Shiva co-starring Ranbir Kapoor set for release on September 9.
