Alia Bhatt, who stars in Karan Johar's Student of the Year, will reportedly play one of the leads in 2 States, an adaptation of the Chetan Bhagat best seller. She will be paired with Arjun Kapoor.
Karan Johar will produce the film, which will be directed by Abhishek Verman.
Chetan Bhagat's 2 States is about two characters Krish and Ananya from different states who fall in love. Quite predictably, their parents are against the alliance. Their struggle to get married forms the rest of the story.
