Meet Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Lucky Mascot



Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Alia Bhatt

While every actor  in the smallest of roles shines  in  Sanjay Leela  Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi there is one actor who  appears  on  just one scene  as a  guest at a party hosted  by Ajay Devgan, and you can’t miss him.

 He  is none other than veteran  actor Raza Murad who agreed to be part of the film for  Bhansali’s sake.

Says   Bhansali , “I consider Raza Murad Saab my lucky mascot. He  has been in my last  three films. And they were all successes. He  HAD  to be  a part of Gangubai Kathiawadi , no matter  how. There was  no  full-fledged role  for him this time,so I just asked him to be part  of  a party sequence. He sportingly agreed.”

Says Raza  Murad, “I am the only actor,who has worked with him  in four consecutive movies.There was no suitable role for me in Gangubai Kathiawadi.So Sanjay Sir told me  that he wanted me   in the movie because  I am  his lucky mascot,therefore I happily  agreed  to be a tiny part of Gangubai.”

   Raza Murad  considers  it his good fortune  to have  worked repeatedly  with Raj Kapoor and  Sanjay Bhansali. “I  feel very lucky to have worked with two of the  most passionate and perfectionist makers of all times,Raj kapoor in his last two movies  as the main villian in  Prem Rog and Ram Teri Ganga Maili and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s last four movies,Ram Leela,Bajirao Mastani,Padmavat and Gangubai Kathiawadi. Both the great makers have one thing in common,they make their movies with divine madness.”
