Ranbir was never considered for the role,” he said. Although, Ranveer Singh was always the first choice of the filmmaker for Baiju Bawra.
Alia Bhatt on the other had has already worked with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for his film Gangubai Kathiawadi which is yet to be released. “Alia was insistent. Bhansali thought she fitted the part. When she read the script she went berserk. Alia says it is the best script she had read,” revealed the source.
