MUMBAI: Bollywood actress Alia Bhatt, who would be seen alongside Shah Rukh Khan in Karan Johar's upcoming film, says working with the superstar would be a great learning opportunity for her.

Johar has announced his next home production with Alia and SRK to be helmed by Gauri Shinde of "English Vinglish" fame.

It is not clear yet if SRK and Alia would be romantically paired opposite each other in the film.

The 22-year-old actress is very excited to share space with the "Om Shanti Om" star.

"I am very excited to be working with him (Shah Rukh Khan). He is the biggest superstar. It is a dream come true moment," Alia told PTI.

"He is one of the best and respectable actors in the industry. I would get so much to learn from him. It is a great learning opportunity for me," she said.

"The pressure comes with every film. As actors we need to do our best... impress the audience as they are the king. We need to justify their faith and give our best," the "Highway" actress said.

Apparently the film narrates journey of a young girl played by Alia, who falls in love thrice and walking out of every relation with a new life lesson.

"It is too early to talk about the concept of the film," she added.

Reportedly, the "Student of the Year" actress has begun shooting for Gauri Khan's film while Shah Rukh is busy with "Dilwale".

On this Alia says, "The details would be given out soon."

Alia is also looking forward to the release of "Shaandaar" in which she is paired opposite Shahid Kapoor.

"I am excited as well as nervous for the film as after long time my film is coming up. It's a fun, family film," Alia said.

"Shaandaar", directed by Vikas Bahl, will hit the screens on October 22.
