Sanjay Leela Bhanali is known to be a perfectionist. When he plans a movie, he already has his vision in place and knows how to go about it. For Gangubai Kathiawadi, that is being headlined by Alia Bhatt, the maverick filmmaker built a huge set, like most of his other films, that captured the old world Kamathipura. The lockdown has hit the makers of the biopic really hard as they have been paying enormous bills to keep their set on the ground.

But now, we hear given that there's no clarity on when filming will begin again, SLB has decided to deconstruct his set for now. A trade source tells us, "It's a good decision on his part because it's still unclear if the shoot will begin anytime soon. The producers are still paying daily rent for the set to Film City. They have now calculated that even if the shoot resumes somewhere around September-October as is being discussed, it will be a more practical call to demolish the set now and create a similar one again."

The trade pundit pegged the losses at Rs 15 crore at least. "It would be a smaller loss compared to if they continued to keep this set. Monsoons will hit the set bad and it will anyway get destroyed. So paying regular rent is not feasible. Constructing a new set is what still seems to be a better option here. The set is huge, and reflects Kamathipura from the '60s so it will take another Rs 12-13 crore to build it again. The remaining Rs 2 crore is the sum that the makers have lost because of the lockdown and the Coronavirus outbreak." We reached out to the producers and the team but they remained unavailable for comment.

Alia, pls do roles that suit your personality

SLB should surely give it a second thought to take Alia. She is not apt for his kind of movies, she proved it very well in Kalank.

This is what happens when you snatch away roles from the strugglers..

Alia's pic looks extremely silly. These kind of roles don't suit everyone. Our Alia needs to get a grip of her choices, instead of only letting KJO choose for her. He is trying too hard that there is no genre Alia has done. But she is a bad choice for SLB movie. She does not have that screen presence or aura to carry such huge roles.

Lol last year her PR was printing articles that anything big bollywood is doing then alia has to be in it. Look now what happened. Anything big in which alia is in, is incurring loss or getting shelved.

KARMA for stealing deepika's filmfare award for padmavat and for stealing her slb film.

I am so happy and I want to see her career sink badly. Let her feel the pain of sidharth whom she treated like a dirt. He was used to keep her in news and when she finally got her dream man she forgot sid in seconds.

She’s adorable and talented and I cannot understand why people are so mean and judgmental with her. Nothing better to do? Bad natured? Jealous of her success? Which is it? What happened to the adage - if you have nothing nice to say then why say anything at all? Honestly I wish people would behave online how they would in person.

Nobody is jealous of alia. It's just that bad deeds of alia are coming back to her. She still refuses to accept her mistakes. This adds to the misery.

Katrina has already paid for her deeds now it's time for alia and alia will have much more to pay as she has destroyed the careers of so many outsiders, her contemporaries and stolen the films of senior actress and treated sidharth like a dirt.
