On director Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s birthday today, the makers decided to release the poster of the film featuring Alia and it looked all kinds of intense and strong. Now, they’ve released the teaser of the film, giving us a glimpse into the world of Gangubai Kathiawadi.
The teaser starts with the introduction of Gangu (Alia), who is referred to as the ‘chand (moon)‘. She is bold, fierce and fears no one. She is the madam of a brothel in Kamathipura, and this is her story of how she stood up and fought through the many oppressive factors and struggles in her life which made her her strong and confident self.

Doesn’t Alia embody the character to the T? She really is one actress who always manages to blow us away with her talent, no?
The film is based on the chapters of noted author Hussain Zaidi‘s book, Mafia Queens Of Mumbai. It also stars Ajay Devgn in a special role where he plays a mobster who falls in love with Alia Bhatt’s character. Although we are not sure of the entire cast, Shantanu Maheshwari, Vijay Raaz and Seema Pahwa, Jim Sarbh and Huma Qureshi are set to be a part of it while Emraan Hashmi will also have a cameo appearance.
The film is set for a theatrical release on July 30, 2021 and I sure am excited to catch this one on screen!
