Here’s Why Alia Bhatt Is Not In Heeramandi

Published

Alia Bhatt

Alia Bhatt  would have  loved to be a part  of Heeramandi. After completing one film Gangubai Kathiawadi  with  Sanjay Leela  Bhansali she now wants  to be a  part  of  “all” his  films. In fact she  was offered a role in Heeramandi. But Bhansali and Bhatt mutually decided against casting her in that  project.

 Here’s why.

“Bhansali’s series Heeramandi which is  meant for  the  streaming platform,  which will be directed by his former assistant Vibhu Puri while he  will supervise the project  overall. Bhansali will also be shooting his  next big-screen project Baiju Bawra next year. Alia Bhatt had the  option  of doing both the projects. Both Bhansali and Alia felt her  presence  was  more important  to Baiju Bawra than  Heeramandi,” says  a  source  close to the project.

Sources say Bhansali and  Bhatt now share a mutual  admiration club and are keen to work  together repeatedly . In this case, one  project’s loss is  the  other project’s gain.
