Recently there were reports doing rounds that Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor Parth Samthaan will be making his Bollywood debut with Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Gangubai Kathiawadi. The news emerged after the actor decided to quit the show to concentrate on other projects and had recently revealed that there is a good chance that he will be doing a film this year. However, according to a report by Bollywood Hungama, a source close to the filmmaker has rubbished the rumours.
It is a very suspicious leak because it was orchestrated to show up all over the internet simultaneously. Anyway to cut a long story short, there is no truth to it.
Alia Bhatt‘s romantic lead in the film is Shantanu Maheshwari, who will be making his big-screen debut with the film.
The 29-year-old actor hailing from Kolkata is a trained dancer and bagged his major break in Mumbai with the television show, Dil Dosti Dance. The actor has been seen in various dance and reality shows.
Gangubai Kathiawadi which is based on the book, ‘Mafia Queens Of Mumbai’, stars Alia Bhatt in the titular role. It chronicles the life of a brothel owner and matriarch, Gangubai Kothewali. The film is touted to be high on drama and intensity and will tell the tale of her journey from the streets of Mumbai to becoming the city’s most feared woman.
