Alia & Kartik to star in Bhansali's next directorial 'Gangubai'

After cancelling Salman and Alia starrer Inshallah, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has announced another project titled ‘Gangubai’. After the announcement of the film, Alia Bhatt was seen outside the filmmaker’s office. According to reports, Kartik Aaryan will be seen opposite Raazi fame actress in the forthcoming Bhansali project.

According to one of the leading dailies, the Pyar Ka Punchnama fame actor was seen leaving Bhansali’s office which gave rise to the speculations. This film is based on a chapter from Hussain Zaidi’s novel, Mafia Queens of Mumbai, according to which, Gangubai Kothewali was a famous ferocious pimp of Mumbai’s red-light area, Kamathipura.


Talking about the film, the director said I love the story, it's been with me for long and I'm keen to make the film. Priyanka and I are in talks.

But when desi girl, Priyanka Chopra was asked about the same, she said, I haven't signed a Hindi film yet... I'm a fan of Sanjay Bhansali in whatever he makes, I'll always be his fan.

The official statement is still to be made by the parties involved in the project.

Talking about Alia and Kartik’s other projects, the two have plates full of projects in front of them.


Alia Bhatt is currently shooting for ‘Sadak 2’ which is being directed by her father, Mahesh Bhatt. She will be sharing the screen with Aditya Roy Kapur, Sanjay Dutt and Pooja Bhatt in the film. Other than this, she will also be seen in Ayan Mukherji’s Brahmastra with boyfriend, Ranbir Kapoor, Takht and RRR.


On the other hand, Kartik Aaryan has just finished shooting for Pati, Patni Aur Woh and also Imtiaz Ali’s next with Sara Ali Khan. Apparently, the film is the sequel to Love Aaj Kal (2009). He shared a picture holding the script of Dostana-2. He has also got Bhool Bhulaiya 2 in his forthcoming projects.
