Now, it has been reported that Sanjay Leela Bhansali is having an intimate affair with Gangu Bai Kathiawari’s Alia Bhatt and the male protagonist Shanto Maheshwari.

He further said that Sanjay Leela Bhansali can use some other techniques to show closeness in the film. Sources said: “It is better to be safe than to apologize in these difficult times.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali wants to wait as long as it takes to release Gangubai Kathiawari on the big screen instead of the OTT platform. Although some filmmakers, who at first thought they would never join the OTT platform, succumbed to the pressure created by Covid 19, Sanjay Leela Bhansali is still adamant.

A sources near to the project disclosed: “SLB is very happy with the final results. And it’s the best movie. They can’t be moved to the OTT platform at any cost.

Questions are being raised as to when Kovid 19 will be brought under full control and no one has a specific date or day to answer, however, Sanjay Leela Bhansali does not care. He thinks that Gangu Bai Kathiawari will be seen on the big screen either, and he is ready to wait “no matter how long it takes”.
