Gangubai Kathiawadi shoot on a 12 crore set comes to a screeching halt, release likely to be postponed

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, which was being shot on a 12-crore set at Film City (Goregaon, Mumbai), has ceased all shooting post the Coronavirus scare. If the suspension of all shooting continues, it is likely that the set depicting a Mumbai Chawl in the 1960s would have to be demolished thereby leading to heavy losses for the film’s producers.

As Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi shooting comes to a screeching halt, release likely to be postponed

A source in the know informs, “Gangubai Kathiawadi is one of the least costly Bhansali Productions. Alia Bhatt is the only star and she has been paid a fraction of what Salman Khan was to be paid for Bhansali’s (aborted project) Inshallah. Most of the production costs were going into the construction of sets and production value. Doing a set all over again would be substantial a budgetry setback.”

Because of the spiraling budget and the delayed schedule it seems unlikely that Gangubai Kathiawadi would release as  per schedule in September 2020.
