Gangubai Kathiawadi was a brothel owner in the red light district of Kamathipura in Mumbai. The film is being adapted from S Husain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai. The film was under speculation from the time when Salman Khan had announced his exit from the Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial Inshallah.

Alia Bhatt tweeted about the film, putting speculations to an end-

“A name you’ve heard, a story you haven’t. #GangubaiKathiawadi. This ones going to be special!” the actress wrote in her tweet. Alia Bhatt was keen to work with Bhansali in spite of not getting the opportunity to work with Salman Khan. “I was very excited to work with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, of course very excited to work with Salman as well. I believe that sometimes things just happen and it’s not in your control,” Alia Bhatt had earlier said. It is also being speculated that Kartik Aaryan would join Alia Bhatt in Gangubai, but that is still unconfirmed.

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi is slated to release on September 11, 2020.
