The much-awaited Sanjay Leela Bhansali directorial, Gangubai Kathiawadi has completed its entire shoot today.
Starring Alia Bhatt, is based on the life of Mumbai’s mafia boss Gangubai Kathiawadi, who was a sex worker and eventually became an underworld don in Mumbai. The tale walks through the life of young Ganga who in no time marks her own territory and becomes Gangubai – The Matriarch of Kamathipura.
After the last shot was canned, and the last pack up called, Alia Bhatt took to her social media to share a beautiful note on her exhilarating journey of working on the film.
The actress shared, “We started shooting Gangubai on the 8th of December 2019 .. and we wrapped the film now 2 years later! This film and set has been through two lockdowns.. two cyclones.. director and actor getting covid during the making!!! The troubles the set has faced is another film all together! But through all that and more… what I take away is the gigantic life changing experience!
Being directed by sir has been a dream all my life, but I don’t think anything would have prepared me for the journey I was on for these two years.. I walk out of this set a diff person today! I love you sir! Thank you for being you .. there is truly NO ONE like you 🪄✨
When a film ends a part of you ends with it! Today I’ve lost a part of me.. Gangu I love you! You will be missed
♥️ P.S – special mention to my crew – my family and friends for these two years! Without you nothing would have been possible! Love you guys!!!”
Produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and Dr. Jayantilal Gada (Pen Studios), Gangubai Kathiawadi will release theatrically once the current pandemic situation in the country eases.
