Bhansali to rope in Kartik Aaryan opposite Alia Bhatt for Gangubai?

We told you earlier that after Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah got shelved after one day of shoot, Bhansali being the righteous man that he is, offered Gangubai to Alia Bhatt, his Inshallah leading lady. While nothing has been confirmed yet, our sources have told us that the film (Gangubai) which was first on Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ kitty is now in Alia Bhatt’s.

Not just that. Buzz now is that Bhansali is considering Kartik Aaryan to play the male lead in his film based on a chapter from Hussain Zaidi’s novel- Mafia Queens of Mumbai, and it focuses on Gangubai Kothewali, the matriarch of Kamathipura. While the male lead will be a much smaller role, it’s still a Bhansali film at the end of the day. Remember how Chopra Jonas made her mark in Bajirao Mastani even in a supporting role?
