The shoot of Alia Bhatt‘s upcoming film, Gangubai Kathiawadi was supposed to wrap up by the summer, but the pandemic-led lockdown impeded filmmaker, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s plans. Now the latter is planning on returning to the sets of Gangubai Kathiawadi with his leading lady, Alia. According to a report by MidDay, the sources suggest that the duo is all set to kickstart work from October.
In the first post-pandemic schedule, they will film solo scenes of Alia Bhatt and other sequences that require fewer people. Some cheat shots will have to be employed, which will be corrected later at the VFX stage. Being a perfectionist who doesn’t want to compromise on the scale of the product, the filmmaker has decided to shoot the more elaborate scenes later. The set is currently being fixed and sanitised for an October shoot. However, Bhansali has yet to determine the final dates.
