Usually, we see a lot of grand dance sequence in a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film, whether it was Devdas or Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam or Ram Leela the dance numbers and the melodious music of these films are unforgettable. There were reports in a section of the media that Alia Bhatt will be performing two dance numbers in Gangubai Kathiawadi.
But according to a report in Spotboye Alia has no dance sequences in the film. The report says, “Though Gangubai Kathiawadi is not a songless film like SLB(Sanjay Leela Bhansali)’s Black, it is certainly not a musical like Devdas or Saawariya. SLB has composed some songs for the film that are moody atmospheric and mostly will be played in the background.” As for Alia, “She plays a dreaded criminal. Where will she get space to dance?”

Though early in the film she has a romantic number with her screen lover played by tv actor Shantanu Maheshwari with whom Gangubai elopes as a teenager, only to be betrayed by him. The source also adds that there will be one dance number in Gangubai, performed by Huma Qureshi. Meanwhile, the second wave of Covid-19 across the country has resulted in several Bollywood actors getting infected with the deadly coronavirus.
From Aamir Khan to Ranbir Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Alia Bhatt, testing positive, many celebs are forced to go under quarantine and several film shoots are being stopped because of the same. Last month Sanjay Leela Bhansali had tested positive for Covid-19 when working on ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’.

The film is in the last leg of its shoot and an engaging trailer of ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ was released on February 24, coinciding with SLB’s birthday.
The film will be also dubbed and released in Telugu alongside its original Hindi version, the makers have said.
