In a picture that has surfaced, Alia Bhatt, Shah Rukh Khan and Aanand L Rai can be seen together at Dubai airport. It is now being speculated that Alia is on board for this film.

Reports suggest that Alia Bhatt has replaced Deepika Padukone, who opted out of the film because of date issues. The actress is currently busy working towards the completion of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Padmavati, which is due to release in November this year.

The film is set to be one with three lead characters, played by Alia, Shah Rukh and Katrina Kaif.

Rai has mentioned that he does not want people to refer to this project as the 'dwarf film'. It will release in December 2018.

Speaking about his look in the film, Shah Rukh Khan said, "My look is very different from Kamal Hassan’s in Appu Raja. We have done the test, we are through with the trailers. We will be releasing it (look) properly. It’s important that the audience accepts our effort."
