Actor Alia Bhatt has a lot of surprises in store for her fans and is excited about the coming year. With multiple projects in her kitty, she will soon be seen in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Inshallah' opposite Salman Khan, Karan Johar's 'Takht' and her father Mahesh Bhatt's 'Sadak 2'. The actress revealed her reaction to being cast opposite Salman and it is as cute as they come.

"I literally remember myself jumping. I was not in town, I was out of the country and I was doing something and I got a call and I was like.. literally I ran to the corner and I jumped up and down for 5 minutes because I was so excited," the 'Brahmastra' actress said. She added that the film's shoot begins next week. This will be her first movie opposite Salman.

The news had garnered a lot of backlash online when the news was announced for the vast age difference between the two. Alia had responded, "I didn't get any criticism. I think I got a lot of excitement. I think speculation is also a form of excitement in a way and why shouldn't there be speculation. There should be and at least I am not bothered by that and I don't think Salman or Bhansali sir are bothered. I think this is a filmmaker who has given us very good films, he is someone who we all are very fond of and I think we should just trust him with his vision."

Alia also talk about her other projects. She said, "'Sadak 2' shooting has begun, 'Brahmastra' also is on, more or less over as well. The film is gonna be out next summer. So yeah next year is again gonna be very exciting year for me because you know working with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for the first time, working with Salman for the first time, working with Ranbir for the first time, Ayan for the first time, Mr. Bachchan, like a lot of first time, my dad for the first time. So net year actually is gonna be super super super special and I really hope it goes well."

Bhatt recently wrapped up the Ooty shoot schedule for 'Sadak 2'. The movie also stars Sanjay Dutt, Pooja Bhatt and Aditya Roy Kapur. She was last seen with Aditya and Sanjay in her last movie 'Kalank' which failed at the box office.
