There are reports that Alia Bhatt will perform two dance numbers in Gangubai Kathiawadi.
Sources close to the film debunk these theories being forward by fans of Alia and her dancing.
A source very close to the project tells Subhash K Jha, "Though Gangubai Kathiawadi is not a songless film like SLB (Sanjay Leela Bhansali)'s Black, it is certainly not a musical like Devdas or Saawariya.
"SLB has composed some songs for the film that are moody, atmospheric and mostly will be played in the background."
As for Alia, "She plays a dreaded criminal. Where will she get the space to dance?"
Early in the film, she has a romantic number with her screen lover -- played by television actor Shantanu Maheshwari -- with whom Gangubai elopes as a teenager, only to be betrayed by him.
The source adds that there will be one dance number in Gangubai, performed by Huma Qureshi.
