Alia Bhatt To Shoot Big Song Sequence For RRR, May Sing Her Own Song



Alia Bhatt

While Alia Bhatt’s songs in Sanjay Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi are  sung by  Shreya  Ghosal, there is  every chance that Alia Bhatt will be singing for herself  in  S  S Rajamouli’s RRR. …Again! Lest we forget Alia  has earlier sung for herself in Imtiaz Ali’s  Highway  and in Shashank Khaitan’s  Humpty Sharma  Ki Dulhaniya.

Says a source,  “Alia has one big song-and-dance  number in RRR   which she  may  sing in her own  voice.  The  only problem is her accent  in Tamil and Telugu ,  in which case she will sing  for herself  only in the  Hindi version  of RRR.”

While in Gangubai Kathiawadi  Alia’s titular character  is  on screen from the  first frame to last, in RRR  she has more  of  a cameo  and may be billed as “guest star” in the credit titles.

However  Alia has no songs  in her  other  forthcoming  film Gangubai Kathiawadi.  We  all  know  Sanjay Leela  Bhansali is  not only a  great filmmaker  but also a very accomplished music composer.His love ballads for the now-shelved Inshallah  , which I have had  the  privilege of hearing, are  among the  most exquisite musical creations of  Indian  cinema in  recent times.

Alia was looking forward  to emoting to those amazing love  songs. Alas, that was not to be.  And now in Bhansali’s   Gangubai Kathiawadi  Alia  will have no songs to sing.

A   source  very close to the  project inform, “Sanjay Bhansali  has composed  beautifil  songs for  Gangubai Kathiawadi. But none will be performed  by Alia. She plays a  gangster and  singing- gangsters  don’t make sense.”

Apparently  this  film is  in the very realistic space  occupied  by Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s other  masterpiece  Black.

It is hard to imagine  a Sanjay Leela Bhansali creation without  a profusion  of music singing and dancing. But then  the director after three  back-to-back costume dramas  featuring Ranveer Singh  and   Deepika Padukone is  seeking a break in every  way possible.
