Sanjay Leela Bhansali has possibly pulled off the biggest casting coup in Bollywood, in recent times. He's getting Alia Bhatt and Deepika Padukone to romance Ranbir Kapoor in his version of Baiju Bawra.

Last year, Sanjay Leela Bhansali made double announcements. While he signed Alia Bhatt for Gangubai Kathiawadi, he also revealed that he's making Baiju Bawra. Ever since he made it official, there have been several speculations about the same. Pinkvilla exclusively revealed to you that Ranbir Kapoor has been locked to play one of the primary leads in Baiju Bawra.

While the film will mark a reunion for the Sawaariya actor-director duo, we hear that there will be two leading ladies and another A-list actor in Baiju Bawra, too. Our informer reveals, "It's a story of four characters - two heroes and two heroines. For both the heroines, SLB has decided to go with his current favourites Deepika Padukone and Alia Bhatt. He has narrated the script to both of them and they have both loved their parts. In all probabilities, Alia will be paired opposite Ranbir's Baiju in the film, stepping into Meena Kumari's shoes from the original. Deepika will play the other female lead, that of dacoit Roopmati essayed by Kuldip Kaur in the 1952 drama. Both the actors will be Ranbir's romantic interests in the period saga and have shown a keen interest in the project. If this materialises, this will be a big casting coup for sure." This will also be Deepika and Alia's first film together. We reached out to the filmmaker's spokesperson but they didn't respond to our texts.

The source further adds, "The movie revolves around the characters of Baiju and Tansen and the conflict between the two. For Baiju's character, Ranbir has almost been finalised. The paperwork is yet to be done but SLB has already discussed the film with the actor and he's liked the script. For Tansen's role, they need a much older actor and they are already in talks with two big superstars to come on board."

Alia bhatt is the worst thing to happen to BW. Get deserving actresses in these films, ones who are good looking and have the charisma, grace. kriti sanon, manushi , tripti, etc etc. what is wrong with these filmakers. these are actresses who should be leading. not mouse face alia bhatt who has no individuality, and is probably the most self conseited/self obsessed actress to ever exist. not to mention, she has bad character and insults anyone and everyone who she is jealous of.

Yes and look what he did with Kiara Advani... I remember Alia said that she is aware of Kiara’s talent! So Kjo purposely gave her work in digital movies and tried to portray her in bad light! Again he made her portray such a woman in a small role in Kalank. This is all image building. He does that so that Kiara will never rise and conquer the throne! .. but if you see closely, Kiara has beauty and immense talent! And you can’t stop talent. Kabir Singh was a huge success yet they tried so hard to pin the movie down! Kiara has potential . Hope she signs some incredible movies and be wary about Kjo! She should think 100 times before signing anything that Karan or his associates are giving! I really really hope that she is smart enough to realise all this!

Never because she isn't a part of Kjo gang like Alia and Deepika. Karan purposely destroys the career of Kriti, Razneeti and Shradha to make alia shine

Listen Cheapika fans ( if she still has any ) don't dare compare yourself with Katrina Kaif. Neither were you ever a match to her beauty and make fan following neither you are a good human. You are exposed so badly and your bad karma ( fake Depression stories and always blaming Katrina and Ranbir) has hit you hard. Kudos to Katrina and Ranbir for teaching an attention seeker like you a good lesson. You deserved it .Btw I know it's her 'Over enthusiastic PR' as nobody in their right mind will like a anti national druggy who sells depression stories on murders. Go to hell now.

He’s an annoying actor & from all accounts not a very good human. But he gets a clean chit. Not one comment has a thing to say about him. It’s all Deepika vs Katrina va Kangana... What a misogynistic society bee live in.
