A popular entertainment portal has made a tall claim on behalf of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi. It was announced that Alia will be singing a composition by Bhansali for the film.
However a source very close to the project completely rubbishes the report. “Alia singing for Gangubai Kathiawadi? Wow, that’s news to all of us. It is news to Sanjay Bhansali too. Since this portal knows so much about the project, please let us know when she is singing, what are the lyrics for her song , etc etc? Jokes aside, there is no lip-sync song in Gangubai Kathiwadi. There are five songs that Sanjay Bhansali has composed for this film. All of them have been used in the background.”
The source also adds that Alia has an intense role in the film. “It’s not character that would burst into a song. This is not the first time that that the leading lady won’t be singing in a Bhansali film. Rani Mukherjee had no songs in Black.”
It was recently that Alia Bhatt released the trailer of Gangubai Kathiawadi on Sanjay Leela Bhansali's birthday. The trailer received a thumbs up from the critics and audiences as well.
