The much-awaited Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial, Gangubai Kathiawadi has completed its entire shoot. The film starring Alia Bhatt as the protagonist kicked off in December 2019.
On the occasion of the wrap, Alia took to her social media handle to share a beautiful note on her grand journey of working with Bhansali. Alia Bhatt wrote- “We started shooting for Gangubai on the 8th of December 2019... And we wrapped the film now two years later! This film has been through two lockdowns...two cyclones... the director and actor getting Covid during the making!! The trouble the set has faced is another film all together ! But through all that and more ... What I take away is the gigantic life-changing experience”.
Praising Bhansali, she added, “Being directed by sir has been a dream all my life, but I don’t think anything would have prepared me for the journey I was on for these two years. I walk out of this set a different person today! I love you sir! Thank you being you....there is truly no one like you.”
Produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Dr. Jayantilal Gada (Pen studious), Gangubai Kathiawadi will release theatrically once the current pandemic situation calms down in the country.
Titled Gangubai Kathiawadi, Gangubai as The Madam of Kamathipura in the history pages was pushed into forced prostitution at a young age, and later became an extremely influential pimp with various associations with the underworld.
