Gangubai Kathiawadi Collected

The teaser of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's new film ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, starring Alia Bhatt, was released today, on February 24

The teaser of the highly-anticipated Bollywood drama, 'Gangubai Kathiawadi,' unveiled an unrecognizable Alia as the fierce owner of a brothel in Kamathipura.

Alia plays the legendary brothel madam, Gangubai Kothewali, who hailed form a Gujarati family of lawyers and ran many brothels in the 60’s after the man she had loved sold her as a sex worker for RS 500.

Based on Hussain Zaidi's book ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’, Bhansali’s latest drama will explore Kothewali’s immense political influence which she accumulated over the course of her life by maintaining ties with the underworld.

In the teaser, Alia, draped in white sari, rides in a Bentlee, calls herself the president of Kamathipura and humourously declares, “No one cared for my innocence or honoured me with marriage either."

Filming of Gangubai Kathiawadi began in late 2019 and was briefly delayed because of the pandemic.
