Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been continuously shooting the latest and longest schedule of his u underproduction film Gangubai Kathiawadi in Film City, Mumbai. The current schedule was meant to be over by the end of October. But we now hear the shooting has been extended by two weeks to November 15.
Says a source in the know, “Very clearly Bhansali wants to wrap up the shooting as soon as possible. He has extended the current schedule by two weeks, so that most of the shooting for Gangubai would be over. After this schedule there’s one more schedule, and then the film will be complete.”
This 2-weeks extension of Bhansali’s shooting means a further delay in Alia Bhatt’s shooting with SS Rajamouli for RRR. ALSO READ: 'Alia Bhatt, Ramcharan Teja And NTR Jr Do Not Have A Love Triangle In RRR' Says Baahubali Hitmaker SS Rajamouli - EXCLUSIVE

Incidentally Alia Bhatt’s romantic lead in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi is 29-year old Shantanu Maheshwari who makes his large-screen debut with this big break.
Shantanu who is a trained dancer from Kolkata got his first major break in Mumbai on television in Dil Dosti Dance where he played the lead for two years. He has been seen in various other dance and reality shows as too a number of fictional series.
Sources say Bhansali saw Shantanu on a reality show and immediately saw star potential in him. Shantanu was called by Bhansali’s office and that’s how such a prestigious screen debut fell into the young entertainer’s lap.
The epic filmmaker intends to introduce Shantanu to the audience in a big way.
Earlier in Saawariya, Bhansali introduced Ranbir Kapoor and Sonam Kapoor. In Malaal which Bhansali produced, he introduced Meezaan Jaffrey and Sharmin Segal. And earlier in Black he introduced the stunning Ayesha Kapoor.
