For fans of Alia Bhatt, the world came crumbling down when Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Inshallah with Salman Khan and the Gully Boy star was shelved. It surely left all fans of Salman and Alia extremely disappointed. Recently, to cover up the Inshallah fiasco, the prolific filmmaker announced Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia as the lead. Based on a book by a journalist, Gangubai Kathiawadi is the story of the most infamous lady dons of Mumbai. 

Not just this, Gangubai also was known for running a sex racket and was a courtesan herself. She even was a drug peddler and an infamous hitman. Now, as per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Bhansali, who is known for his magnificent filmmaking, might be planning to whitewash Alia’s role as a prostitute for Gangubai Kathiawadi. The report stated that the filmmaker might be planning to go easy on the dark topic of the sex worker cum lady don and might also clean up Alia’s character for the epic film. 

The report also said that the filmmaker might be planning to ‘gloss over the underbelly side’ of the Alia Bhatt starrer. Meanwhile, various reports have been coming in about the male actor being cast in the film. Several names have come forth including Ajay Devgn and more. It was also reported that for the film, Alia will be learning the local dialect inorder to nail her character and that the filmmaker is looking for a tutor for the actress. Yesterday, Alia was also snapped with the filmmaker while she was making her way to his office with Bhansali. Alia has been elated to finally work with her dream filmmaker in the film. Gangubai Kathiawadi will hit the screen in 2020.
