On Sunday, Alia Bhatt wrapped up 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' and described working for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial venture as a “gigantic life-changing experience.” She started shooting for the period drama, set in the city’s red-light district, in December 2019. “It was a journey of extreme highs and lows,” posted the actor. “The troubles faced is another film altogether,” she added.

The Coronavirus-induced lockdown brought shooting to a halt and Cyclone Tauktae razed the sets. The actor and the filmmaker also contracted Covid-19 during the shoot. Initially, Bhatt was to collaborate with Bhansali on Inshallah starring Salman Khan, which did not take off.


“Being directed by sir had been my dream but I don’t think anything would have prepared me for the journey I was on. When the film ends a part of you ends with it. Today, I’ve lost a part of me. Gangu... I love you. You will be missed,” said the actress.

It is said that Bhatt never used glycerine, she could get teary-eyed as soon as the camera rolled while enacting emotional scenes. Cinephiles have been excited about the film ever since the captivating teaser of 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' was released in February. The film is based on the book 'Mafia Queens of Mumbai' written by S Hussain Zaidi.

'Gangubai Kathiawadi' will release theatrically once the current pandemic situation in the country eases.
