Sanjay Leela Bhansali films and controversy go hand in hand – right from Ram Leela to Bajirao Mastani and Padmavati, his films have often faced a backlash from some or the other group. And now, as the teaser of his next, Gangubai Kathiawadi with Alia Bhatt, is out, a certain section of society is hurt by the representation of Kamathipura in the film. Apart from Gangubai, the webshow, Kamathipura too is under the scanner and facing objections from multiple outfits.

In Maharashtra Vidhanshaba session on Monday, an MLA said, that these two projects have resulted in a law-and-order scenario in Nagpada (Mumbai). “Hotstar is going to telecast, Kamathipura, which is a very bad serial and the additional police commissioner had put a stay on the telecast. I request you to not let it telecast,” he said. He went ahead to address his concern against the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film too. “People should know about the woman who have done good work, but this film, Gangubai Kathiawadi, showcases Kamathipura in a bad light. Kamathipura in the 50’s was different from what it is today, and the girls from there have gone ahead to be doctor, engineer and piolet. I request you and home minister to change the film’s and also show how things have changed in Kamathipura today. They have used the term “Kathiawad” in the title, and it is an attempt to showcase Kathiwad in a bad light. I request the government to intervene and change the title”

Gangubai is gearing up for a theatrical release in the month of July, and the shoot was currently in progress at Filmcity in Mumbai with Ajay Devgn and Alia Bhatt. However, it has now been halted since the director, Sanjay Leela Bhansali tested positive of the coronavirus. Meanwhile, the residents of Kamathipura too have protested against the film, calling it Shameful. Stay tuned for more.

Typical PR stunt: 1) Releasing Gangu the same day as a major release, Radye Shyam, for awareness. 2) Typical Sanjay Leela film controversy for more attention. Next: Controversy gets more attention, debating potential release day move, film releases with no issue -_-

But sir.. The film gangubai kathiawadi is based in 1950s when Kamathipura was like that as you just said. So how is it a problem?

Of course, the MLA is saying that Kamathipura & Kathiawad were different in 50s as compared to today. But Gangubai Kathiawadi film is itself based in 1950s. How dumb this politician is.. LOL
