After Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next film starring Salman Khan lost its main lead, there was a continuous line of rumours spreading around the internet. However earlier today it has confirmed that Alia Bhatt will be starring as the main lead in Bhansali's next film Gangubai Kathiawadi. Alia will take the role of the famous prostitute, Gangubai. And the film will be releasing on 11 September 2020.
Until recently Bhansali was on his way to direct Inshallah starring Salman Khan. Inshallah, however, got scrapped as it could not meet the requirement of releasing on Eid 2020. Instead, Salman will now be working on India's Most Wanted Cop: Radhe directed by Prabhu Deva.
The pre-production for Gangubai Kathiawadi has already begun and the sets for the film will start getting prepared soon.
What is still unknown is the actor who will be featuring alongside Alia in Bhansali's film. Though if we believe the rumours, Ranbir Kapoor is being eyed for the part.
