Alia Bhatt is back to work and is burning the midnight oil! Yes, you heard that right. The actress has resumed filming for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi in Mumbai and the cast and crew has been pulling an all-nighter. According to a latest report in Mid-Day, SLB, who was shooting just before the lockdown came into effect, has picked up right where he left off. It was earlier reported that a large part of the film's set in Mumbai's Film City was taken down due to the monsoons.  

However, a portion of the set which resembles Mumbai's Kamathipura was left untouched. Gangubai Kathiawadi's cast and crew now shoot in the evening and the filming goes on till early morning. 

A source told the portal, "To maintain continuity, Sanjay sir picked up the shoot exactly from where he had left it. Since October 1, Alia and the team have been reporting to the set by 7 pm, and the stint goes on till the wee hours of the morning. Although a part of the grand set had been pulled down ahead of the monsoons, the portion resembling Kamathipura had been left untouched. So, the director has been able to shoot without any hiccup."

The film which revolves around Gangubai, the fierce madam of Kamathipura brothels in the '60s, will see Alia in a never before seen avatar. 

Keeping Covid 19 restrictions in mind, SLB is shooting with only a 50-member team and Alia is scheduled to wrap up her scenes soon. As for the film's songs, the source added, "While television actor Shantanu Maheshwari had filmed his song before the lockdown, the shoot of two more tracks is on the cards."

Shut up uglia. You can’t act. I watched raazi and hated your performance

Anonymous 3 months ago

I seriously don't understand why are people saying alia was terrible in Raazi I hate her after SSR's death but that is not right to defame for a performance she had done very well! TBH Alia is a good actress not very good Alia has a talent of acting but people won't agree with me because people who live around the Indian Audience is a hipocrasy! Alia was fabulous in films like Udta Punjab, Raazi, Gullyboy, Highway and Dear Zindagi. Come on hating her is one thing and defaming her folr what she did good is completley wrong! Kangana can imagine Kangana in Udta Punjab doing something what alia did of course not! Priyanka imagine her in highway and Disha ummm imagine her in gullyboy fdugjbpsfugbcv. Use your brains! Hipocrites!

Priyanka is getting OLDER, so she needs MEATIER SCRIPTS ... Disha & Alia are still YOUNG, and they are better for the YOUNG MOVIE GOING INDIAN CROWD ... ACTION, FIGHTING AND DANCING SCORES.

Priyanka, Disha and Kangana are very nice Actresses ... But they have had a few NOT SO GOOD 'BOX OFFICE' numbers too.

Kalank was a star studded or star over-saturated film. ... and Sadak 2 was a BRAVE RELEASE, because it had pandemic ramifications (OTT-release).

LOL ... Words like; Formidable, Oomph, and Un-leading Ladylike are words used in the world of heightened delusions of unobjectivity ... You forgot Words like; BOX OFFICE & TOTAL COLLECTION with Gully Boy & Raazi able to HOLD THEIR OWN ... FOR SUCH A YOUNG 'FORMIDABLE & BEAUTIFUL' ACTRESS ... (Beauty is in the eye of the beholder)

If the leading character is supposed to be beautiful, she is not; if the character is supposed to be formidable, she has the oomph of a mouse; if the character supposed to be interesting, she has nothing to offer in that department. SLB gave into KJo lobby, nothing more. The poster demonstrates how un-leading ladylike she is.

NEPO-FACTS: Shraddha, Alia, Ranbir, Aditya and Vicky ARE TALENTED... Even though their families ARE DRENCHED in Bollywood. These 4 were given NOTHING FOR FREE. Varun, Tiger, Ananya & Sonam ARE THE FACES OF TEXTBOOK NEPOTISM....Ohhh! I forgot to add... Sonakshi Sinha to the Varun list. (pinkvilla please post!)

Lol Gangubai will be Alia's 3rd Disaster in a row. She will forced to marry Ranbir soon as he will turn 40 soon. Alia too will turn 30 in a couple of years and she won't get collage girl roles anymore and soon her career will start sinking after 30 be ayse she don't have looks neither is she young anymore.

Remember... she has been thrust on us by KJO.... Is there a dearth of talent in India?? But who the heck would take an outsider... if she was an outsider, with her average looks would she have been given the same opportunities if it was not her filmy background.
