SLB on Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai look test, “this is going to be the girl for Gangubai”

Alia Bhatt‘s Gangubai Kathiawadi is creating a stir on the internet. After the release of Gangubai Kathiawadi, Alia Bhatt has the whole focus of India. The actress has been receiving appreciation from all corners for her outstanding performance. The film has also performed well at the box office, with revenues approaching Rs 100 crore. Alia sat down to chat with her director Sanjay Leela Bhansali in a new video released on YouTube by Pen Movies.

The two discussed the character’s origins and how it came to existence. Gangubai Kathiawadi’s first-ever look test was also revealed by the team. Sanjay Leela Bhansali said that he had asked Alia for a look test for his earlier planned film Inshallah when recalling the time.

“If you remember, costume trial for Inshallah, I had told you to wear this white saree and then you kept asking but why am I wearing this white saree. Then we brought you out and we put a red bindi on you. Then we tied the hair. By then you had realized that this is not something for Inshallah. I was doing the Gangubai look test in my mind and when I saw that photograph.. I said what is this transformation?” Sanjay Leela Bhansali said.
He added, “In five minutes, suddenly this woman (Alia) transformed. That is when I said, tick mark, this is going to be the girl (for Gangubai).”
