Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been in news in the last one month for more reasons than one. After Salman Khan and he decided to move on from their passion project In-sha-allah, the one person who was left in a fix was definitely Alia Bhatt. The Kalank actress had allotted several months to the shoot of the romantic drama. 

Now, while In-sha-allah is not happening anymore, the filmmaker has signed Alia for another movie - the biopic on Gangubai Kothewali, the legendary brothel madam who had changed the face of Mumbai's Kamathipura. Based on a chapter in Husain Zaidi's novel Mafia Queens Of Mumbai, SLB bought rights to her story and was planning to make the film with Priyanka Chopra. "It was titled Heera Mandi then. Now, it needs to be seen if they retain the same name. But Alia has been brought on board and she might start shoot for the same next month."

But what we heard is even more interesting. Another source from the production tells us, "SLB wants Ranbir Kapoor to play a small but important part in the project. Although the movie will be headlined by Alia, it has some really interesting male characters - some who are against her and some who help her in her trade. Bhansali and Ranbir seemed to have ironed their differences and when the Bajirao Mastani director approached RK for the role, he took out time to hear it out. But he is yet to take a final call on the same." So will RK give a nod to SLB's next? Watch this space for more updates.
