For one who unaware
Baiju Bawra is about a young and extremely talented dhrupad singer-composer by the same name, who challenged composer, musician and Hindustani classical vocalist Tansen, to a singing duel, to avenge the death of his musician father, at the court of Mughal Emperor Akbar. When Tansen’s sentries try to stop Baiju’s father from singing, and he dies in the struggle, he makes the young Baiju promise to take revenge against Tansen.
Earlier this month, Bhansali Productions had announced that they are co-producing Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia in the lead. The film will be bankrolled by Bhansali Productions and Jayantilal Gada’s PEN India Ltd.
A source said, “If Ranveer Singh gives his nod to the movie, it will be again another challenging role for him as he will need some training and knowledge as a singer and musician. It will be interesting to see who plays his romantic interest – will it be Deepika Padukone or Priyanka Chopra? Priyanka holds an edge as she’s an internationally acclaimed singer in her own right.”
More about Baiju Bawra, it will set to release on Diwali 2020 which will be a clash with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s long term muse and Ranveer’s lovely wife Deepika Padukone’s Mahabharat.
