Baiju Bawra: Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt to reunite for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next
The ‘Gully Boy’ pair of Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt are set to team up once again. As per latest reports, the duo are in talks to play the lead roles in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s new film titled ‘Baiju Bawra’. The film is said to be based on a 1952 Hindi film with the same title. The original ‘Baiju Bawra’ had Bharat Bhushan as Baiju and Meena Kumari playing his love interest, Gauri.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali had originally planned ‘Baiju Bawra’ with Priyanka Chopra and Ranveer Singh but things didn’t work out. Priyanka was also the first choice of Bhansali’s ongoing film ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. Alia Bhatt replaced PC in both these films.
Ranveer Singh has already worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in blockbuster films like ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’, ‘Bajirao Mastani’ and ‘Padmaavat’. Stellar performances in these films earned him numerous accolades. When Ranveer renuites with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, expectations will naturally be on the higher side.
An official announcement is still awaited.
