Gangubai Kathiawadi has picked up pace now. With Alia Bhatt leading the project in a never-before-seen avatar, the hype is real. Just a couple of days ago, the teaser of the film came out and it’s been making everyone crazy. To spice it up a bit more, none other than Ajay Devgn has joined the project.
Yes, and this time it’s not any rumour but officially confirmed. The actor has been roped in by Sanjay Leela Bhansali in his crime drama. As Ajay knows how to soak himself into crime dramas very well, it will be a sheer pleasure to watch him creating magic in Gangubai Kathiawadi. The actor will be seen in a cameo role which will be an integral part of the story.
Ajay Devgn will start shooting for the film from 27th February in Mumbai. He’ll be collaborating with Sanjay Leela Bhansali after 22 years. The duo had worked together in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam which released in 1999.
Interestingly, it will be a second collaboration for Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn. They are also part of SS Rajamouli’s RRR which will be releasing in October.
Speaking more of Gangubai Kathiawadi, the film is based on the chapter in Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai. The character of Alia Bhatt is inspired by Gangubai Kothewali who was popular as a madam of a brothel in Kamathipura. The film depicts her struggle when she is forced to enter the world of pro*titution. But as time passes, she emerges as a big shot on her own.
This Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial also features Shantanu Maheshwari in a key role. Emraan Hashmi and Huma Qureshi too will be playing cameos. It is slated for a release on 30th July 2021.
