Since the morning, Parth Samthaan has been all over the news. The Kasautii Zindagii Kay fame actor is said to have signed Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi. The film stars Alia Bhatt in the lead. Koimoi has now exclusively learnt all about the actor’s role in the film.
For the unversed, Alia Bhatt plays the role of a prostitute Gangubai Kathiawadi, who eventually goes own a brothel. She turns into a powerful woman over time owing to her strong connections in the underworld.
Now, as per sources close to Koimoi, Parth Samthaan will be playing the role of Ramnik Lal, the love interest of Gangubai. The role is said to be of a duration of 15-20 minutes but remains a prominent one.
“If we go by the story in the book, the film will witness Alia Bhatt’s character being sold by her love interest (Ramnik Lal) at an early stage. Reports state, that the love story will only last for a period of 15-20 mins, but will set the entire base for the movie. Parth had been willing to move out of his regular roles and foray into Bollywood. This one came at his doorstep at the perfect timing and who wouldn’t want to debut with a Sanjay Leela Bhansali film? Plus there is Alia Bhatt in the lead which is a cherry on the top,” revealed a source close to the development.
Well, this means that we will not see Parth Samthaan in lead. But to have a pivotal role in Alia Bhatt’s female-centric film is a huge deal in itself. Isn’t it? Looks like the Kasautii Zindagii Kay actor is truly in luck.
Meanwhile, Parth has recently quit Kasautii. Our sources even confirm that the actor has signed a web series with Ekta Kapoor. The title of the show has tentatively been decided as ‘Hero.’
There remains no official confirmation but we’re expecting one to happen soon!
