The Alia Bhatt starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali released on Friday to a positive response from the critics. Though the film is one of the most keenly anticipated releases it faces competition from South films Valimai and Bheemla Nayak. In the overseas markets where both south releases hit screens earlier, Gangubai Kathiawadi faces an uphill task in terms of gaining the audiences’ favour.
However, with the favourable reviews and highly positive word of mouth the business of the Alia Bhatt starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi has been seeing massive increments on a daily basis. In fact, despite the collections of the film lagging behind on Day 1, by the third day running Gangubai Kathiawadi is all set to surpass the daily collections of Valimai and Bheemla Nayak in most overseas territories.
In fact, trade expectations state that the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film Gangubai Kathiawadi could easily become one of the highest grossers in the overseas markets by the end of its theatrical run.
