Ranveer Singh and Alia Bhatt have reunited once again after the success of Gully Boy. The actors will get into the prep mode for director Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Baiju Bawra. Meanwhile, both are busy shooting for their next venture Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani.
In an exclusive interview with Pinkvilla, a source has revealed that the prep work on Baiju Bawra is going on side by side with the post-production work of SLB’s next, Gangubai Kathiawadi. The source added that the team is planning to take it on floors by mid-2022. "Ranveer and Alia will play two leads in the film, and another leading lady is expected to come on board for a key role", it stated.
The source also mentioned that apart from Alia and Ranveer, two more renowned actors will come on board and the casting work is in progress. Bhansali was in talks with Deepika Padukone to play a role in this period drama but it has not been finalised yet if Deepika is involved with the film. The film will be shot over some time of the next 7 to 8 months. The source has revealed that the team has already been working on designing grand sets for the shooting. For an uninformed, earlier, Bhansali saw Ranbir, Deepika, and Alia for the movie but things turned around as Bachna Ae Haseeno co-stars decided to back off from the project.
