Bollywood actors Alia Bhatt and Shahid Kapoor will soon appear on Salman Khan's show "Bigg Boss 9" to promote their film "Shaandaar."

"Bigg Boss Nau" which is in the form of "Double Trouble" this time, will be aired 11 October onwards and the "Shaandaar" actors will promote the film on the next weekend, i.e., 17 October, according to Bollywood Life.

This will be the second time time that Alia will be appearing on "Bigg Boss", while it will be Shahid's third visit.

Recently, the "Shaandaar" team promoted their film on "Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 8". The dance reality show is judged by Shahid himself, so a grand promotion was expected. Alia performed on "Jhalak Reloaded" grand finale.

Few days ago, the duo visited several television shows including "Comedy Nights With Kapil" and "I Can Do That" for promotions.

Directed by Vikas Bahl and co-produced by Phantom Films, Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Fox, "Shaandaar" has created a lot of curiosity.

In the film, both Alia and Shahid suffer from insomnia and fall in love in the middle of a larger-than-life wedding. It is an out-and-out youthful love story focusing on two characters -- Alia (Alia Bhatt) and Jagjinder Joginder (Shahid Kapoor). Alia's father Bipin (played by Pankaj Kapoor) adds a twist to their romance as he believes no guy will ever be good enough for his daughter.

While Alia is a dreamer, Jagjinder Joginder is a doer and he feels he can make anything happen. And Bipin hates him for obvious reasons.

This is the first time that Shahid and Alia are teaming up for a film. "Shaandaar" is supposed to be India's first ever film on "destination wedding".

The film is slated to be released during Dussehra on 22 October.
