A film that has been the talk of the town since the first look was released back in 2019 is Sanjay Leela Bhansali's directorial, Gangubai Kathiawadi. The film featuring Alia Bhatt in the lead role is based on an infamous Mafia Queen of old times named Gangubai Kothewali. Today, the teaser of the film is finally out and it portrays the transformation of a young girl into the bold and fearless don who reigned supreme in the streets of Kamathipura. 

The teaser takes us back in time to a town named Kamathipura where a young girl Gangu is forced to accept her circumstances and turn around her destiny. As she embraces her inner power, she is seen becoming the reigning queen of Kamathipura. Alia is seen in a powerful role in the teaser. From embodying the strong characteristics of a mafia queen to impactful dialogue delivery, Alia manages to hold your attention from the start of the teaser video to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s period film.

The trailer is described as, "Gangubai Kathiawadi - A story, based on the book “Mafia Queens of Mumbai” written by  S. Hussain Zaidi, is a film that celebrates the rise of a simple girl from Kathiawad who had no choice but to embrace the ways of destiny and swing it in her favour."

Take a look:

Earlier during the day, the new poster of the film was released that left fans intrigued. The film reportedly also stars Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi and Huma Qureshi in cameos that will leave an impact on the audiences. Alia stars in a never-seen-before avatar and hence, the film has been the talk of the town. The film was initially slated to release last year. However, owing to the COVID 19 pandemic, the shooting was stalled and hence the project was delayed. Now, it is all set to release on July 30, 2021. The film will reportedly clash with Radhe Shyam starring Prabhas and Pooja Hegde.

How could she even land a role like this? She has zero presence or anything related to the person she is representing

Only hardwork Alia and team has done is in dressing her and expensive sets.

Alia is very talented, but is a miscast for this role. It would've been better to get an actress with more grit and maturity (appearance-wise).

Tabu has the maturity and gravitas you need for this role. Aalia is missing it. If Aamir Khan can play college boy in 40s (in 3 idiots),why can't Tabu play a 16 year old. That's okay too.
