Mumbai, Oct 16 (PTI) Alia Bhatt is set to headline Sanjay Leela Bhansali's 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' and the film will release on September 11, 2020.

According to the makers, Bhansali will co-produce the film with Jayantilal Gada's Pen India Limited.

The announcement comes a month after Alia said she would be working with the celebrated filmmaker 'very soon'.

Directed by Bhansali, 'In-shaa-allah', starring Alia and Salman Khan, could not come to fruition as the project was shelved in August.

The movie, which was a co-production between Salman and Bhansali's banners, would have marked the director-actor duo's first collaboration in two decades where Salman was supposed to play the lead. PTI RDS
