Ajay Devgn, who will play a 'significant role' in Gangubai Kathiawadi, reunites with Sanjay Leela Bhansali 22 years after the duo's iconic musical drama Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
Actor Ajay Devgn will start shooting for filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming movie Gangubai Kathiawadi from Saturday.
The film features actor Alia Bhatt as Gangubai, one of the most powerful, loved and respected madams from Kamathipura during the 1960s.
Devgn's spokesperson confirmed that the 51-year-old actor will join the Gangubai Kathiawadi team at a grand set, created at a studio in Mumbai.

The actor will be seen playing a "significant role" in the film which marks his first collaboration with Bhatt.
The movie also reunites Devgn and Bhansali 22 years after the duo's iconic romantic-drama Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.
Gangubai Kathiawadi has been adapted from one of the chapters of noted author Hussain Zaidi's book Mafia Queens of Mumbai.
The movie will open in the theatres countrywide on 30 July.

The actor, who is currently directing his fourth film, shared an endearing moment from the sets with his son Yug Devgan.
What makes Khamoshi so memorable despite its flaws, and what makes it so different from the plethora of alleged ‘remakes’ internationally, is Bhansali’s insistence on making (and calling) it a “musical”.
Actor Alia Bhatt is riding a crest like few actors have in recent memory. She is co-producing Darlings, is expecting her first child and has featured in a Hollywood production with stars Gal Gadot and Jamie Dornan.
