One of the most anticipated film of Bollywood this year is Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ starring Alia Bhatt. However, the film has been pushed to next year and will be releasing on the 06th of January.
Alia Bhatt had shared in social media some months back that she is done with the shooting and the post-production of the film. With the post-production going on in full progress, it was expected that the film will hit the screens by this year end. With many biggies competing against each other in November and December, the team has decided to release the film as the first film of 2022.
‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ is a biographical crime drama, based on the book ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’ written by S Hussain Zaidi. The film tells the story of Ganga a simple girl from Kathiawad, who is sold to prostitution in Kamathipura, a red light area. How Gangubai becomes the queen of Kamathipura forms the crux of the film. The film is originally made in Hindi and dubbed to Telugu and other languages.
Sanjay Leela Bhansali apart from penning the script, composing music and directing the film, has also produced the film with Jayantilal Gada of PEN Films. Alia Bhatt is seen in the role of Gangubai along with Shantanu Maheshwari, Vijay Raaz, Huma Qureshi and guest appearances from Ajay Devgan and Emraan Hashmi.
