Over the past few months, filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been shooting his passion project, Gangubai Kathiawadi, in the late hours of the night. Now that the shooting of the night schedule of the Alia Bhatt-starrer is done, the filmmaker is eager to kick-start the day stint that will cover a crucial part in Gangubai Kothewali’s life. According to a report by MidDay, the production design team has erected an additional set, close to the existing set-up at the studio in Goregaon.
The publication quoted a source as saying—
The upcoming stint will apparently focus on early 1960 when those living in the vicinity of Kamathipura wanted the red-light belt evacuated. Gangubai had spearheaded the movement against the evacuation of sex workers. The film’s team has erected a small set at Joker Maidan in Film City, complete with a dais and a wide-open space for rallies, as Alia’s character will be seen delivering speeches and hosting marches.
Alia Bhatt was supposed to shoot the sequences last week, however, the plan was ruined by the unexpected rain in the city.
Apart from ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, Alia will be seen romancing boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor in ‘Brahmastra’. Helmed by Ayan Mukerji, the film also stars Amitabh Bachchan, Nagarjuna, Dimple Kapadia and Mouni Roy in pivotal roles. The actress also has Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ and ‘Takht’ with Karan Johar in her kitty.
