In a recent development that has sent ripples through the Bollywood industry, the master craftsman himself, Sanjay Leela Bhansali, is reportedly considering South Indian superstar Nayanthara for a pivotal role in his upcoming magnum opus, 'Baiju Bawra.'
This eagerly anticipated musical period drama already boasts Ranveer Singh in the titular role and Alia Bhatt as the female lead. However, the reports clarifies that Nayanthara is not replacing Alia; instead, she is being approached to play a significant character alongside the two leads. While negotiations are ongoing, the actress has not officially signed on the dotted line.
According to reports, both the filmmakers and Nayanthara, accompanied by her husband and acclaimed director Vignesh Shivan, held discussions with Sanjay Leela Bhansali in March 2023 to explore potential collaboration possibilities. The talks are reportedly in the final stages, with terms and conditions being ironed out. If all falls into place, this could mark Nayanthara joining forces with Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt in what promises to be an epic cinematic experience.
'Baiju Bawra' is set to transport audiences to the enchanting world of Hindustani classical music in the 1950s. With Ranveer Singh essaying the titular role, this venture marks the fourth collaboration between the actor and the visionary director Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
Nayanthara, known for her exceptional acting skills and captivating screen presence in the South Indian film industry recently won the hearts of her fans with her stellar performance in the film 'Jawan', starring alongside Shah Rukh Khan. She was highly lauded for her performance and fans are eager to see her in more Bollywood projects now.
