Gangubai Kathiawadi: Covid Test On Alia Bhatt Starrer, Sanjay Leela Bhansali Directed Film, Every Four Days - EXCLUSIVE
Sanjay Leela Bhansali is taking no chances with the shooting of his film Gangubai Kathiawadi. Every four days every member  of the cast and crew is tested for the Coronavirus. "God forbid, if  any  one  is tested positive they would have to shut down  the  shooting immediately,” a  source  close to the project informs.

 It’s a  fairly  volatile situation  on the sets. The  crew  has been cut down to  the bare minimum.And  yet the danger lurks in everyone’s heart.

“No one is  allowed to take  off the mask unless facing the camera  for a shoot. No physical contact whatsoever is allowed, on or off the camera. After every shot the  actors move to different corners. This is no way to shoot  a film where actors need to  constantly  interact to look comfortable on screen,” says  the  source.

  One wonders how  Sooraj Barjatya would shoot one of  his family films  now. Barjatya is known to  keep the family  spirit  alive on the sets, with everyone eating laughing and talking together, even when the camera is not on.

Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi stars  Alia Bhatt in the  title role. She had   taken   some days  off to shoot for S  S Rajamouli’s RRR  but is  now back on Bhansali’s set

Sources say Alia is transformed into a ferocious gangster in Gangubai Kathiawadi.

“She  will be  unrecognizable  in the film. That’s how  much she has changed herself for the  role,” reveals  the informed source.
