The wait is finally over. Filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali is all set to introduce to the viewers the most awaited Gangubai Kathiawadi on Wednesday. Starring Alia Bhatt, in the titular role, the film is based on the legendary brothel runner who changed the face of Mumbai’s Kamathipura. On Tuesday, Sanjay and Alia shared a video on their social media accounts in which they announced that the first look of the film will be unveiled on Wednesday.
Bhansali wrote, “The wait ends and the excitement begins now.. Get ready to dive into her world, first look out tomorrow.”

This is the first time that the two are coming together for a film. Ever since the filmmaker announced that his next film Inshallah with Alia Bhatt had been shelved, fans were waiting for their collaboration.
Earlier there were reports that Bhansali has roped in Priyanka Chopra to play the legendary brothel owner in his film. The actress had also confirmed that she was in talks with the filmmaker for a project.
In December, Alia Bhatt also announced the release date of Gangubai Kathiawadi. She wrote, “Look what Santa gave me this year.”
The film will hit the screens on September 11, 2020.

"It is not a full-fledged part but a special appearance. It is a very interesting role. An official statement in this regard will be made soon," a PTI report said.
