After the humongous success of Raazi, Alia Bhatt is marching forward to sign another hit film and that too with Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The film will be titled Gangubai Kathiadiwadi and is based on the life of a Gujarati prostitute.
Taran Adarsh was the first one to inform us about the film as he Twitted that Sanjay Leela Bhansali has announced his new film Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia Bhatt in lead role. Also,the release date was final and it is 11 Sept 2020. Bhansali Productions in collaboration with Jayantilal Gada’s PEN India Ltd will work for the biopic.
After the fallout of the filmmaker with Salman Khan, the film Inshallah was shelved. Alia Bhatt was supposed to be the part of this movie but she lost the chance. At an awards night, she said that she was very excited to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Salman Khan. Sometimes things don’t go as planned she was confident that she would have a chance to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali very soon. She was positive that the luck will be on her side and she would sign a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film soon. And lo! Here it is!
The 26 years old (or young!) actress could not contain her excitement and tweeted perkily “A name you’ve heard a story you haven’t. This one(‘)s going to be special.” The film is expected to be released on 11th September, 2020. Although, the male lead on the project is yet to be announced rumours are it will be Alia’s beau, Ranbir Kapoor. We would love to watch the real life romance in reel life. The duo is working on Brahmastra at the moment.
