Sanjay Leela Bhansali is one of the ace directors of the industry. He is known for making magnum opus and has given some milestone films to the Indian Cinema. However, it seems the stars are not in the right position for the filmmaker nowadays. There are reports that the director is struggling for the casting of his forthcoming films.
While his gangster drama Gangubai Kathiawadi stars Alia Bhatt is still struggling to get the leading man. There are reports, another film of the director titled Baiju Bawra is also missing out of the lead cast.
Bhansali’s first choice for the role of Tansen in Baiju Bawra was Ajay Devgn. However, the actor declined the offer.
According to the sources, Ajay thinks more then Tansen the title role of Baiju is far more pivotal.
Baiju Bawra is the story of a singer from the provincial class scores over the legendary singer Tansen.
The actor, director who had worked together in 1999’s Hum…Dil De Chuke Sanam has not done any film since. Although Bhansali wanted Ajay to star in Ranveer Singh’s Bajirao Mastani, that didn’t happen too.
