Ever since Alia Bhatt's next with Sanjay Leela Bhansali was announced, fans, as well as avid cinema watchers, couldn't keep calm. Titled Gangubai Kathiawadi, the film will present the actress in a never-seen-before avatar of an influential pimp. Now, after keeping all of us on our toes for interesting updates on the drama, Alia, on Tuesday, shared Gangubai Kathiawadi's motion logo on her Instagram account.
In addition to the excitement that came along with the logo, Alia announced that her first look as Gangubai, a dreaded gangster, will be out tomorrow. Isn't that interesting? With Gangubai Kathiawadi, Alia will be teaming up with Bhansali for the first time. The film came across when Salman Khan and Bhansali shelved their much-anticipated project Inshallah with Alia owing to creative differences between the Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam duo, who were reuniting after two decades. Taking the association with the Raazi star forward, Bhansali greenlit the gangster drama.
Gangubai Kathiawadi is said to be based on a brothel madam from the red light area, Kamathipura in Mumbai. She is said to have changed the face of the region and is one of the most remembered women from the history of Mumbai. Gangubai is believed to have been pushed into prostitution at a very young age and became the most influential pimp, having served several renowned criminals from the city. The film is inspired by a chapter from the book Mafia Queens Of Mumbai.
