Alia Bhatt to romance Kartik Aaryan in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai’


Alia Bhatt and Kartik Aaryan are going to share screen space with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai’. These days the ‘Sonu Ki Titu Ki Sweety’ actor has been snapped outside Bhansali office frequently. "I can give it you in writing that I am going to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali very soon", the 'Raazi' actor said during a recent event.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali earlier considered Priyanka Chopra for the role but finally Alia Bhatt is finalized. ‘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.

However, Sanjay Leela Bhansali has also selected Alia Bhatt for ‘Inshallah’ opposite Salman Khan but the film shelved due to Salman backing out of the project.  

On the work front, Alia Bhatt is busy with Mahesh Bhatt's 'Sadak 2' and Kartik Aaryan is shooting 'Love Aaj Kal 2', 'Pati Patni Aur Woh'.
