Gangubai Kathiawadi: Sanjay Leela Bhansali Has Only  One More Day To Shoot With Alia Bhatt Who Recently Tested Positive For COVID-19
The timing of Alia Bhatt’s  Covid-19 couldn’t have been worse for  Gangubai Kathiawadi,  the opus that she is shooting for with  Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Sources  in the know say she had only one  day’s shooting left when the virus played villain.

“This is a huge financial and emotional  setback for  the project. Sanjay was somehow shooting  through the  contagion  following all the guidelines strictly when he  was tested positive for Covid. After his  quarantine period he immediately got back to shooting. They were about to wrap up when Alia was also tested positive. There was  one more day of shooting left. Now  this (Alia’s confinement) means  he will have to  re-assemble  the  entire  160-member cast  and  crew for one more day,” says  the source adding that Bhansali is  not the least  perturbed.

 “He has faced hardships  throughout the making of his films. His set was burnt down during Black. His producer was  hospitalized during Devdas. He was assaulted during Padmaavat. Sanjay now feels if there  are no hardships during the shooting, the film may not  be as creatively satisfying as he wants  it to be,” a close friend reveals.


In that case we can only say, let the hardships  roll in.
