Actress Alia Bhatt on Wednesday tweeted to announce the release date of her film Gangubai Kathiawadi. The Sanjay Leela Bhansali film is slated to release on July 30. "in cinemas 30th July, 2021 Red heart #GangubaiKathiawadi #SanjayLeelaBhansali @prerna982 @jayantilalgada @PenMovies @bhansali_produc, (sic)," Alia posted along with the poster of the film. Have a look at the post below:
The film is going to clash with Prabhas and Pooja Hegde starrer Radhe Shyam. Shortly after the announcement, fans of Prabhas started trolling Alia Bhatt and the makers of Gangubai Kathiawadi for clashing with Radhe Shyam on Twitter. “@aliaa08 Aap ke movie disaster hone ke tayari karlo all the best .... Pan Indian star hae voo #prabhas unko takkar dena samajre tum. Aap ke life time collections vo ek hi din ma kamalega #radheshyam .... Better change your decision alia ji,” wrote a user. Another one wrote, “Only Prabhas matters...Gangubai will be a big flop.” “#RadheShyam big Disaster,” read another tweet.
Gangubai Kathiawadi is the first time that Bhansali directs Alia. The story revolves on the life of Gangubai Kothewali, the madam of a brothel in Kamathipura, and is based on a chapter of Hussain Zaidi's book Mafia Queens Of Mumbai.
Besides Alia, the film also features Ajay Devgn and Vikrant Massey.
The film was scheduled to release on September 11 but got delayed due to lockdown. Earlier, Alia spoke about resuming the film’s shoot amid the Coronavirus pandemic. She told Hindustan Times, “Like I said, we are all apprehensive, these are uncertain times but we have to make an effort and look at doing the best that we all can do. Also, the ability to be back on set doing what you love is a blessing and I feel very grateful for every moment.”
She had added, “It’s a great feeling to be reunited with the team and being back on set. Of course, we have multiple restrictions and protocols to follow, everyone is very careful, taking all sorts of precautions. But we’ve accepted that this is the new normal, and we’re all trying to make the best of the situation.”
