Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt are all set to share screen space in Gauri Shinde's upcoming movie, but reports suggest SRK is not very pleased with Alia's acting skills.

Gauri Shinde's upcoming untitled film will present Shah Rukh and Alia together for the first time and the actress has been very excited about the project.

The pre-production work for the film has already started, with workshops being conducted, but Shah Rukh is not impressed with Alia's performance in one of the scenes, reported The Asian Age.

The report also said the "Dilwale" actor has aired his concerns to Gauri Shinde. However, Gauri denied the rumours, saying: "Huh? What odd news."

There was buzz that the much-talked-about Shah Rukh-Alia movie had been shelved due to some difference between Gauri and the film's co-producer Karan Johar.

However, KJo put the rumours to rest by confirming the making of the film on Twitter. "@gauris film with @iamsrk and @aliaa08 commences principal photography middle of jan!! Pre production is on full steam now! Exciting!!!! (sic)," Karan tweeted.

The film is supposedly about a girl who meets three men, and with every new relationship her perspective about life changes.

Meanwhile, Shah Rukh is busy with the promotions of "Dilwale", which is slated to be released on 18 December. Alia, too, has a couple of upcoming movies — "Udta Punjab" and "Kapoor and Sons".
