Filmmaker Karan Johar, who launched Alia Bhatt in Bollywood with his 2012 blockbuster Student of The Year, wants nothing but the best for his protégée. Though the director is quite happy and proud to see how Bhatt has grown as an actor over the years, he wants her to join forces with ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Recently, superstar Shah Rukh Khan organized a grand Diwali party at his bungalow Mannat, which saw the attendance of many of his close friends from the industry, including Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt and Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

At the bash, a guest overheard Johar recommending Bhansali to Bhatt. Karan feels that Alia must work with the greatest director in the industry. “There seems to be a mutually respectful bond and a whole lot of affection between Bhansali and Johar. The earlier animosity has been washed away,” said the guest.

Well, Alia has been seen visiting Bhansali’s office twice over the past few months. However, there has been no confirmation about whether the duo is teaming up for any project or not. Bhansali is known to present her actresses in their best form. We know if Alia works under his direction, it will add a new feather to her cap.
