With Gangubai Kathiawadi awaiting release even now as the pandemic continues, director Sanjay Leela Bhansali also has another project to be rolling soon in the form of Heera Mandi. But if there is one project that has been the talk-of-the-town for a really long time now, it has be another of Bhansali's ambitious project, Baiju Bawra.
The film, while not rolling yet has been the topic of conversation for a long time now and multiple superstars have been rumored to be a part of the film on multiple occasions. While the strongest ones included the names of Kartik Aaryan and Ranbir Kapoor apparently being roped in but now after all this time, it can be sealed that the aforementioned actors won't be seen in the film surely.
A recent report in ETimes suggests that none other than Ranveer Singh has been finalized to play Baiju Bawra. The source mentioned that an official announcement is in the offing, but yes, a few modalities yet remain to be worked out. Probably post all that, Bhansali will declare.
This will mark Bhansali's fourth collaboration with Singh after a hattrick of successful blockbuster films in the form of Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani and Padmavat.
