Gangubai Kathiawadi is currently one of the most talked-about and anticipated films. While movie buffs await further updates regarding the movie, fresh trouble has mounted for its makers. That is because the family members of Gangubai have filed a case against the biopic’s director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and lead actress Alia Bhatt at the Bombay Civil Court. Reports state that they have raised objections to the story of the film. If that was not enough, another person has also filed a case.

He is none other than Hussain Zaidi himself on whose book ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’ the film is actually based on. However, further details and an official confirmation is still awaited regarding the same. For the unversed, Alia Bhatt plays the titular role in the film. The fans were stunned when her first look from the Bhansali directorial was unveiled on social media. Her intense look as the queen mafia was highly praised by the critics.

The actress will reportedly play the role of a brothel owner and a matriarch in Gangubai Kathiawadi. The biographical crime drama has been co-produced by Jayantilal Gada and Bhansali himself. It was earlier scheduled to be released in September 2020 but that could not happen because of the unprecedented situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Alia Bhatt resumed shooting for the biopic in October and completed the same last month. Earlier, the titular role was supposed to be played by Priyanka Chopra Jonas but she was later replaced by Alia.

Someone tell that overrated Bhansali that this trick of ‘creating controversy’ is almost embarrassing now. Ram-Leela, Bajirao Mastani, Padmaavati. Every time same old tired PR stunt. Clearly he is not confident about his own films and needs these excuses to keep them in news. Such a sad pathetic excuse of a human being.

Same old bore. Does not hold in this new era. Such complaints are stale and stupid. India needs to reform Justice system massively in order to be spared from stupid petitions. If it’s a publicity stunt - then SBL should know this movie will be buried on OTT unless it is genuinely good and the platform is willing to release numbers...which it won’t unless it’s very big. Pls post PV
