Alia Bhatt to star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’

New Delhi: Speculations of Alia Bhatt starring in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film have been doing rounds for quite some time. The pretty actress has time and again been snapped in a cheerful mood outside the maverick filmmaker’s office and fans have been wondering if the shelved film ‘Inshallah’ is back on cards.

Alia will indeed star in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, but no, it isn’t ‘Inshallah’.

On Wednesday, the filmmaker announced a new film titled ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ with the ‘Raazi’ actress.

Noted film critic and trade analyst confirmed the news on Twitter.

He wrote, “#Xclusiv: Sanjay Leela Bhansali announces his new film #GangubaiKathiawadi… Stars Alia Bhatt in title role… Also, release date finalized: 11 Sept 2020… Bhansali Productions collaborates with Jayantilal Gada’s PEN India Ltd for this film.”

Not only this, the film’s release date has already been locked as September 11, 2020.

This is the first time that Alia has collaborated with ace-filmmaker Bhansali and expectations are soaring high from the duo!
