Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Ajay Devgn will be coming together after 20 years in the biopic Gangubai Kathiawadi. This fact has given rise to great excitement amongst the fans. The story of the movie is said to be loosely adapted from one of the chapters of Hussain Zaidi’s Mafia Queens Of Mumbai. Gangubai was the only brothel madam at that time who owned a black Bentley. SLB’s movie is expected to go on floors this year.
We all know that Alia Bhatt will be playing the role of one of the most powerful, loved and respected madams of Kamathipura brothel during the 1960s. Now the interesting part will be the on-screen pairing. The film will reportedly see Ajay play an intense character of a gangster with a golden heart, who teaches Gangubai the ropes and in turn, falls in love with her.
A trade source quoted,
“Last week, Ajay Devgn and Sanjay Leela Bhansali met at Anand Pandit’s Diwali party and chatted for hours. They caught up on a lot of stuff and that’s when SLB also invited him over to his office. Ajay dropped in a couple of days after that and they had meeting for more than a couple of hours. Bhansali offered him two scripts – a biopic and the other fictional, a love story, which is said to be Baiju Bawra. In Baiju Bawra the actor was offered the role of Tansen. Ajay liked his role in Gangubai as it’s an intense character – a mobster with a golden heart. One who teaches Gangubai the tricks of the trade and falls in love with her.”
A source reported, “Ajay didn’t sign right then as he wants to do the signing and make the announcement at an auspicious date, which will be this week. The star showed the famous filmmaker some scenes his next project. A historical action drama, Tanhaji and Bhansali who himself excels in such period dramas was quite impressed. Apart from both these movies, the filmmaker also offered him another action drama. It is on a warrior film, which will be directed by SLB, at a later date. Ajay’s role in Gangubai is an extremely powerful and passionate one. And will be remembered in cinema for the depth and romance in it.”
