On the occasion of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s 58th birthday, Gangubai Kathiawadi teaser has been released by the makers. It stars Alia Bhatt in the titular role and also has a special appearance by actor Ajay Devgn. The film is based on one of the chapters of noted author Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai.
In the short teaser, we meet Alia as Gangubai, who is independent, feisty, outspoken and a strong individual. In her own words, she was, and will always be “the moon”. Bhatt seems to have worked on her body language and dialect to portray the character of a madam of the brothel who originally came from the Kathiawad region of Gujarat. Bhansali, for whom the film is his tenth directorial, has paid attention to details. The background score in the teaser catches attention and raises interest in the music of the film.
