Emraan told us, “That [Gangubai Kathiawadi] is not happening. I am not a part of that project. We were in talks but things did not pan out. Not in a bad way but somethings did not work out.” Well, we are sure fans will be a little disappointed to know this. Meanwhile, Emraan Hashmi has a great lineup of movies for the year.

Speaking of Gangubai Kathiawadi, the Mumbai Court on Thursday dismissed a suit against Alia Bhatt starrer. Gangubai’s alleged adopted son had filed a suit that cited infringement of the right to privacy, liberty. He claimed that the contents of the chapter of the book ‘The Mafia Queens of Mumbai’ on which the movie is based, are defamatory.
Meanwhile, the set for the movie is built in Film City, Mumbai. Alia Bhatt’s first look for the movie was much loved by everyone as she donned a never-seen-before avatar.
