Sanjay Leela Bhansali is back to reliving all his ambitious projects, one at a time. After Alia Bhatt was announced as the lead in his next directorial, Gangubai Kathiawadi, SLB was quick to announce his second venture that would revolve around a music maestro. As per the confirmed report, the director will helm 'Baiju Bawra' - a revenge story of a musical legend and our excitement for the same is already touching the sky. What about you?

Alia's 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' will hit the screens on September 11, 2020, post which the director will start working on his next. Baiju Bawra will release on the auspicious occasion of Diwali but in 2021. Yes, that's two years away but we bet this long wait will be worth it. It's unclear if the actor has approached Kartik Aaryan or Ranveer Singh for this role as both the actors were clicked visiting his office recently.

Bhansali's announcement of a new project also confirms that Inshallah won't be made for the next two years at least. After his project with Salman Khan and Alia Bhatt got shelved for reasons best known to him, it was rumoured that he will go ahead with a new actor. But with Gangubai Kathiawadi and now Baiju Bawra in the making, seems like the director is in no mood to go ahead with Inshallah for the next few years. Let's hope he's able to present in eventually.
