Here’s Why Deepika Padukone Lost Bhansali’s Film To Alia!

Contrary  to   the  impression being created , Alia  Bhatt was  not  the  first and last choice for  Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s  Gangubai Kathiawadi. The  role  was earmarked for Bhansali’s favourite Deepika Padukone.

But according to sources two factors  played the villain and none  of them had anything to do with Alia.

 Firstly  Deepika Padukone was  already playing a gangster  in Vishal Bhardawaj’s  Sapna Didi which was authored by  Hussain Zaidi who wrote Bhansali’s Gangubai. Deepika Padukone didn’t want  to do two back-to-back lady gangalord roles.

However  Bhardwaj’s Sapna Didi got shelved.And  Deepika Padukone would have happily returned to Bhansali territory

 “But she was keen to co-produce Gangubai Kathiawadi with  Bhansali. He was not  ready to do that. They parted amicably over the  issue. That’s how Alia came  into the project. But Bhansali can’t live too far  away from Deepika Padukone’s  territory. She will be back in his cinema with  his next Baiju Bawra,” says  the source.
