Alia’s character is based upon Gangubai, a remembered matriarch who hailed from Kamathipura, and owned a brothel. Known as the Madam of Kamathipura or Gangubai Kothewali, she was also said to be sharing strong connections with Mumbai’s underworld. It will be indeed interesting to see Alia breathing life into a character such as hers.
Earlier, in 2019, Bhansali had announced that he was bringing Alia and Salman Khan together, for a flick titled Inshallah. A collaboration between Bhansali and Salman was long due, and the announcement left everyone excited. Unfortunately, the film never took off and eventually was shelved. But Bhansali, who was eager to work with Alia, soon announced Gangubai Kathiawadi.
The film is slated to release on September 11, 2020.
