Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi is one of the anticipated movies of the year. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial venture will witness Alia playing the role of Kamathipura’s famous brothel madam Gangubai who is almost worshipped in the area for the power she held and the social activities she was a part of.
While Alia headlines the film, it has already been reported that Ajay Devgn too plays an important part in the gangster saga.
In a recent development, an entertainment portal has reported that there are three other cameos in the film which required two younger actors and a female actress.
As per the entertainment portal report, Shantanu Maheshwari has been roped in to play a prominent part in the dark biography. “Sanjay Leela Bhansali was looking for a fresh face who would carry that innocence but still be convincing in a dark role.
The team had auditioned Shantanu Maheshwari and they loved his tape. SLB also was immensely impressed by him and he has now officially been signed on to play one of the lead roles opposite Alia in the film. He plays the role of Afsan in Gangubai. He will kickstart shoot for the film soon in Mumbai.
However, an official confirmation on the same is awaited!
