Sanjay Leela Bhansali is said to be currently working on Gangubai starring Kartik Aaryan and Alia Bhatt. Read on to get the full update here.
Ever since the news of Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt starrer Inshallah being shelved has been out, all the fans of Salman and Alia Bhatt have been super upset because who wouldn’t want to see Salman and Alia Bhatt romance on the silver screen, right? However, post Inshallah being shelved, we have often papped Alia Bhatt at Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office and reports suggest that post Inshallah, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is roping in Alia Bhatt for the film- Gangubai, and what’s the latest is that Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety actor Kartik Aaryan has been roped in as the male lead. That’s right!
As per reports, Kartik Aaryan is in the running to play the male lead opposite Alia Bhatt in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s upcoming directorial ‘Gangubai’.
According to a report in the portal, Kartik Aaryan has been snapped outside Bhansali office, and that clearly paves way for the fact that the Padmaavat director is considering Kartik Aaryan to cast in Gangubai. Gangubai is based on a chapter from Hussain Zaidi’s novel- Mafia Queens of Mumbai, and it focuses on Gangubai Kothewali, the matriarch of Kamathipura. While Bhansali was considering Priyanka Chopra to play the lead role in Gangubai but now it is being reported that Bhansali is considering Alia Bhatt for the lead role. Well, if reports are to be true, it will be a dream for all the cinephiles to watch Alia Bhatt and Kartik Aaryan share screen space.
Although there has been no official announcement on the same as yet the buzz is that because SLB had committed to working with Alia in Inshallah, he’s already brought her on board for Gangubai and is ensuring to fulfill his commitment. This is precisely also the reason why Alia confidently went on record to say that, “I can give it to you in writing that I am going to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali very soon”, during a recent event.
Besides Gangubai, currently, Alia Bhatt is shooting for Mahesh Bhatt’s Sadak 2 co-starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt in Mumbai, and she will also be seen romancing Ranbir Kapoor for the first time on screen in Ayan Mukerji’s Brahamstra.
Well, let’s see who gets finalised eventually. But of course, if Kartik really gets paired opposite Alia in the film then it’s definitely going to be one dream pairing on screen. What do you think? Tell us in the comment section below.
