Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ makes it to the news for one reason or another these days. If the sources are to be believed then one can easily say that this story of the brothel owner of Kamathipura was quite close to Bhansali’s heart & he was waiting for the right actress to come on board to start working on the project. In the past, Priyanka Chopra was rumored to play the titular role but with Alia Bhatt now almost confirmed, it seems like his dream is finally coming true.
Latest reports suggest that Hrithik Roshan has been approached to play the role of the gangster Haji Mastan. If these reports come out to be true, then this would be the 1st time Hrithik & Alia would come together for a project and would surely send fans into a tizzy. But an official confirmation from the people concerned with the project is required before we get too excited. The work on ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ is set to begin anytime next month.
On the other hand, SLB has also announced another flick titled ‘Baiju Bawra’, is slated to hit screens for Diwali 2021. Rumors suggest that Ranveer Singh has been approached to play the titular role.
Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted,
“After the release of #GangubaiKathiawadi on 11 Sep 2020, Sanjay Leela Bhansali to make his most ambitious film project…Titled #BaijuBawra…Revenge story of a maverick maestro…#Diwali2021 release.”
Bhansali Productions also went to their official twitter handle and shared,
“On this auspicious day, we are delighted to make your Diwali happier by announcing our next endeavour.”
To summarise, one can say that Bhansali’s future projects are making us quite excited. If we have common views then let us know in the comments section below.
Talking about Bhansali’s past projects, his last flick Malaal, that was also the debut film of his niece: Sharmin Segal had a nosedive at the box office.
