Debutant co-stars of Karan Johar's 'Student Of The Year' are already dating each other, even before their shoot begins

B-Town is filled with tales of co-stars falling for each other while shooting for their first screen pairing together.

However, Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan who make their debut in Karan Johar's Student Of The Year, hit it off even before shooting began.

The two met during casting and liked each other almost immediately and are now seeing each other.

While Varun has been a Dharma regular and even assisted Karan on My Name Is Khan, Alia is a rank newcomer. Even though their first encounter was awkward, things changed when they started reading for the film.

A source says, "Both come from filmy families.

Alia is Mahesh Bhatt's daughter and Varun is David Dhawan's son. They started off by getting to know each other's families.

Also, since Alia is much younger to Varun, he was naturally protective of her. During the narration and first introduction, Varun kept making sure she was comfortable with him."

Both have a common interest in the latest music and movies. "They would often end up discussing the latest TV shows and movies for several hours.

Varun is a chilled out guy and Alia enjoys his company. They have a close group of common friends who they hang around with."

The shoot of the film begins in June and Alia and Varun are making sure they get to know each other better before they face the camera.

"One of the reasons they have been bonding is also to break any ice before the actual shoot begins. The two were spotted together in Bandra a couple of times on their way to scene rehearsals."
