The teaser of Alia Bhatt's film 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' was released on Wednesday. The teaser features Alia Bhatt, never seen before. The 1-minute 30-second teaser left an impression that can only be said that there can be no better actress for the role of Ganguly than Alia Bhatt. However, do you know that Alia Bhatt was not the first choice of Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the producer of this film? Actually, there is a buzz in the Bollywood corridors that Sanjay Leela Bhansali did not want Alia Bhatt in his film
He cast Alia in his film Inshallah, which is currently on hold due to Salman Khan's refusal. In place of Alia, Gangubai wanted to take both Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Rani Mukherjee, or Priyanka Chopra to Kathiawadi. Bhansali thought that either Ganguly or Priyanka could play the role of Ganguly very well. However, let us tell you how much truth is there in these reports to Sanjay Leela Bhansali, but Priyanka Chopra has already put a stop to these reports. In an interview, Priyanka said that she has not signed any Hindi film at the moment and has not spoken to Sanjay Leela Bhansali about any film.
She also revealed that she is doing two Hollywood films, one of which she has shot. Before Priyanka, Rani Mukerji's name was in Sanjay Leela Bhansali's mind. For this, he had also discussed with the actress, but the matter could not be resolved. Alia Bhatt is being praised everywhere after the teaser of Gangubai Kathiawadi surfaced. She fits into the role of Gangubai perfectly.
Now Sanjay Leela Bhansali must have felt that it was good that he cast Alia Bhatt in this film. Alia spoke dialogues in the film in the same language as a woman from a non-Hindi-speaking region. Gangubai belonged to Gujarat, but the pride he felt when he came to Mumbai touched her heart. Alia Bhatt's film tells the same story of how a girl, who was forcibly sold in the Red Light area of Kamathipura, Mumbai, became the Lady Dawn of Mumbai.
