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 are among the most exquisite musical creations of Indian cinema in recent times.
Alia Bhatt was looking forward to emoting to those amazing love songs but 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 informs, “Sanjay Bhansali has composed a couple of songs for Gangubai Kathiawadi, but none will be performed by Alia. She plays a gangster and singing-gangsters don’t make any sense.”
Apparently, this film will be in the very realistic space occupied by Bhansali’s other songless masterpiece Black.
It is hard to imagine a SLB 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.
