After Deepika Padukone, Katrina Kaif was clicked outside filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s office in Mumbai on Friday. The actor was clicked in her car as she smiled for the cameras and waved to the paparazzi. Now, these regular celebrity spottings at Bhansali’s office have created a stir regarding the casting of the director’s upcoming project. Bhansali is remaking Baiju Bawra which he announced as the big Diwali release next year. The casting of the film is currently underway and it won’t be a surprise if the director signs on two of the biggest industry names together in the film – Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. After all, he has done the same in the past by roping in Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Madhuri Dixit in the remake of Devdas.

It was on Wednesday that Deepika was clicked paying a visit to Bhansali at his office. She was followed by Rajkummar Rao who was also spotted at the director’s office on Friday morning. Earlier, Deepika was clicked with Ajay Devgn at a dubbing studio. That also fuelled the rumours of Bhansali reuniting with Ajay after a hiatus of 20 years since Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.

Along with the pre-production duties of Baiju Bawra, Bhansali is also busy with his upcoming film Gangubai Kathiawadi that features Alia Bhatt in the lead. The film has been announced for release on September 11 this year. It’s the story of the popular madam of a brothel in Kamathipura, Mumbai, named Gangubai Kothewali. The film is based on a chapter from Hussain Zaidi’s book titled Mafia Queens of Mumbai.
