Since the announcement of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Inshallah starring Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan, everyone has been quite eager about the movie. However, it has been shelved now due to a fall out between Salman Khan and director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
From Salman Khan, Inshallah is expected to be his Eid release in the year 2020. So, Salman Khan has announced his movie for Eid 2020 almost immediately after shelving of Inshallah. Now, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has decided to work on Gangubai which is based upon the Gangubai Kothewali’s life. It is believed that Alia will work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali on this movie now instead of Inshallah. Since, Alia has already given the director dates for Insallah. Therefore, Padmaavat director has decided to cast her for this movie. Shooting of the movie is expected to begin from November and it may be continued till the month of February. Based on a chapter of Mafia Queens of Mumbai by S Hussain Zaidi, the movie will be made. Gangubai has been known as the Madam of Red light District Kamathipura in Mumbai. She has been forced to work as a prostitute and dealt with various dangerous gangster of the era during the time.
Regarding shelving of Inshallah, Alia Bhatt has revealed recently “I was very excited to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, of course very excited to work with Salman as well. I believe that sometimes things just happen and it’s not in your control. That way there’s a saying that if you want to make the God laugh then tell him about your plans because plans never really go ‘as per plan.’ But I can give it you in writing that I am going to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali very soon.” So, we are hoping that she is indicating towards ‘Gangubai’ here.
