Sanjay Leela Bhansali is planning several exciting special appearances in ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. He has finalised most the casting, except for a dance cameo which requires an A-list actress.
“He had locked Ajay Devgn to play the role of a gangster whereas for the second guest appearance, he had approached three actors – Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor and Kartik Aaryan but all of them turned it down. Now, they have locked Shantanu Maheshwari for that part. But for the third cameo, which requires a top A-list actress, the search is still on.”, a source told Pinkvilla, “Bhansali has been in discussions with both Katrina Kaif and Deepika Padukone for the part. It’s actually not a role but just a dance number. Katrina had almost been locked for the part, but now the team is toying with the idea of going ahead with DP. They will take a call once the lockdown is over and things start getting back to normal. It’s a beautiful song that will be shot on a lavish set and will be one of the biggest highlights of the movie. Once the shoot begins, the team will lock the dates and shoot the song over a period of three to four days.”
‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ stars Alia Bhatt in the lead role.
