Sanjay Leela Bhansali's next magnum opus - Gangubai Kathiawadi - starring Alia Bhatt will have several interesting cameos. There are as many as three roles for which Bhansali needed three actors and while he has locked two of them already, he's yet to decide for the third.

A source tells us, "He had locked Ajay Devgn to play the role of a gangster whereas for the second guest appearance, he had approached three actors - Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan but all of them turned it down. Now, they have locked Shantanu Maheshwari for that part. But for the third cameo, which requires a top A-list actress, the search is still on."

Talks are on with two heroines already. The source adds, "Bhansali has been in discussions with both Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone for the part. It's actually not a role but just a dance number. Katrina had almost been locked for the part, but now the team is toying with the idea of going ahead with DP. They will take a call once the lockdown is over and things start getting back to normal. It's a beautiful song that will be shot on a lavish set and will be one of the biggest highlights of the movie. Once the shoot begins, the team will lock the dates and shoot the song over a period of three to four days." 


DP although I’m not sure Dippy has the time for it since she’s lined up for movies with prabhas Hrithik Siddhant Chaturvedi big b and Pathan with SRK. Boy that’s a big schedule. I wonder where Sonam and all her posies are now not even on the scene? After taunting DP with so much jealousy..

Should take Madhuri dixit

I do not get it, Katrina is not a dancer neither she is an actor and where is the comparison???? Kat has a face like a horse. If it was not for Salmam n her affair with Ranbir she would have been a third class fluke actress

No deepika is perfect for any role

No deepika is perfect for any role

Deepika can do full justice
She's also has the bonding with slb
She dances with grace and also she is beautiful


Kjo can influence SLB is a joke . But let’s accept this . Alia even though is a nepo product is a great actress. Deepika is good but not as flexible as alia in acting and kat can only move her body well . Let kat get the opportunity she needs it badly as Deepika will produce her films and get movies whereas kat wil be afraid produce her own films lol owing to the kind of acting she does.

Gangubai & sadak 2 will fail. Alia has lost goodwill. No matter who does item number, doesn't matter anymore.

Lol, is he crazy? After making Alia look like a fool with Madhuri, now they want to have an actress twice as beautiful as her do a song now? Make no mistake KJO, you can give Alia all the juiciest movies, but notice that the only time she gets any praise is in movies like Highway or Raazi, when there is A) no other famous people to compete with, and B) a role that requires no glamour or elegance to it.

Stop in your tracks, Alia is half of Madhuri's age and she has not had the training madhuri has had all her life, give the devil her due instead of putting the youngster down. Shame upon you.

Both points A and B indicates that the actor is real and good unlike actresses who are just glammed up like doll .

Ya. This is best comment ever lol

If it's a dance number then it should go to katrina without a doubt. She was terrific in manzoore khuda song.There is simply no comparison between katrina and deepika. Katrina is the best dancer among A Listers and in new Gen actors it's Nora fatehi.

Please take Jacqueline Fernandez she dances very well.

Offcourse deepika but deepika should do next movie for bhansali but happy if she steps in for item no

both look so bad . one is botoxed and the other is make up queen

Sara Ali khan

Kauf and Deepika OLD HAGS too much MAKE UP AND EDIT

Get outta here hater.Sara Ali Khan? U must be joking lmfao. Nothing special about that girl!

Shutup hater

Sara Ali khan

Kauf and Deepika OLD HAGS too much MAKE UP AND EDIT

Would love to see either Sara Ali Khan or Sushmita Sen

let kat have it, why would dp do a cameo in this unless he’s got something lined up for her later

Because deepika isn't getting any films as she has delivered only 1 hit 200 cr club film in past 5 years and that too had 2 heroes who has solely delivered 200 Cr club films .That's why she is producing her every film and open to doing 10 mins role in films like 83.

Not padukone

Deepika padukone

As if he would really choose kat over dp, he’s clearly desperate cause she doesn’t want to do it

As per records kat was first choice for many movies not just Bajirao after the movie is released and went on to become blockbuster like Chennai express , yjhd. Wonder why kat might have not got in first place I spite of being first choice ? Lack of acting skills or may be kat the superstar refused it to do item song and 10 mins cameo in other film .

Well, Kat was his choice before Deepika for Bajirao Mastani after Kareena lost it so what are you talking about.

Well Deepika might do a full new movie for slb . So my bet for item song is Katrina what she is popular for .

Well you might be unaware of the fact that deepika isn't getting new films that's why she is doing a 10mins role in 83 and producing her films.Slb has got his new muse alia and she will also be doing his next film with ranveer.
