“The day Ranbir Kapoor dropped in with Alia to have lunch with SLB at his office, we knew the headlines will scream about a new film together. But the truth is there’s none,” says a source very close to Sanjay Leela Bhansali after Pinkvilla reported that Ranbir is doing the remake of Baiju Bawra with SLB.
Right now , Bhansali’s complete focus is on completing Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia Bhatt.
Says a source close to Bhansali, “There is uncertainty all around. SLB is somehow looking at completing Gangubai. Where does Baiju Bawra come into the picture now? Is SLB insane to start casting for a project which is unlikely to start before 2022?”
The source repeats that Ranbir dropped in for only lunch and a chat with his former mentor.
“When Alia told Ranbir she’s going to meet SLB, he insisted on coming along. It’s really as simple as that. To read Baiju Bawra into it shows how desperate some entertainment portals are to entertain themselves.”
