Alia Bhatt is all set to charm the audience with her never-seen-before avatar in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. If the latest reports are to believed, joining the actress on-screen will be none other than her cousin Emraan Hashmi who will be apparently playing the role of her husband.

According to a report by Peeping Moon, Emraan has been brought on board for ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. He will be playing the character of Alia’s husband who also happens to be the antagonist of the movie. Emraan will play Gangubai’s father’s accountant who later falls in love with her and they run away to Mumbai.

Gangubai was sold by her husband at a brothel for Rs 500 just when she was dreaming of starting a new life with him. The film is said to be based on a chapter from S Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai. Apparently, Kartik Aaryan was offered the role before Emraan but he did not want to play a negative role at this point in his career. The role was also offered to other famous names in the industry but they turned it down and eventually, Emraan accepted it.

The report also stated that Emraan had completed the filming of his part in the movie before the lockdown was imposed in March.

‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ was set to hit the theatres on September 11, 2020, but the schedule was changed given the lockdown due to the pandemic. Reportedly, Ajay Devgn also features in the film but he is yet to shoot his part as the movie was stalled due to the lockdown.
