There has been no update on the star cast as yet.
Earlier, the actor-director duo had collaborated for Inshallah. Excitement levels were on an all-time high as the movie was all set to bring Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt together for the first time. But the film was shelved due to creative differences between the actor and the director. SLB had then announced Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia Bhatt. The movie that is being produced by Bhansali Productions in collaboration with Jayantilal Gada’s PEN India Ltd will be releasing on September 11, 2020.
