Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt will star in "English Vinglish" director Gauri Shinde's next film.

The movie will be produced by SRK's Red Chillies Entertainment, Karan Johar's Dharma and Hope Productions.

"Red Chillies Entertainment...Dharma and Hope Productions are proud to present Gauri Shinde's next starring...SHAH RUKH KHAN and ALIA BHATT..," Johar tweeted just hours after teasing fans with "big announcement coming up..."

Alia, 22, whose debut film "Student of the Year" was co-produced by Shah Rukh, also took to Twitter to share her happiness over bagging the project.

"Will no longer have any problem with my English Vinglish... Can't wait to be directed by Gauri Shinde with the man himself Shahrukh Khan!!!" she wrote.

This is the first time Shah Rukh, 49 and Alia will be starring together in a film. Shinde, who is married to director R Balki, shot to fame with her debut 2012 movie, starring Sridevi.

The film had a simple yet heartwarming story of a housewife who rediscovers herself by learning English to fit in the world of her husband and children.

The director had also given a hint about her upcoming project on the microblogging website.

"Yes, I am making my next film. Script done... well almost... Going on the floors soon. Looking forward to be back in action," Shinde had tweeted.
