The first look of Alia Bhatt’s next with Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Gangubai Kathiawadi, was released recently. The actor plays the titular role of a mafia queen in the film.
Bhansali Productions took to social media to release the first-look posters of Gangubai Kathiawadi. The posters show Alia Bhatt in two different looks. In the first look, she is seen as a young girl with two ribboned pigtails. She wears a blouse and a skirt, with bangles on her wrists. A gun can also be seen placed on a table near Alia. In the second poster, which is a close-up shot, Alia Bhatt looks a little matured, sporting a big red bindi. She has her nose pierced and wears a traditional Kathiawadi nose ring. A big choker is spotted on her neck. Her eyes, loaded with eyeliner, look resplendent. Gangubai Kathiawadi was announced in October 2019, two months after Bhansali’s film Inshallah, starring Alia Bhatt and Salman Khan in lead, was shelved.
Alia Bhatt co-stars with Ajay Devgn in the movie, who plays the role of a mobster and eventually falls in love with Gangubai while teaching her the tricks of the trade. Gangubai Kathiawadi marks Alia Bhatt’s first movie with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The film is slated to hit screens on September 11, this year.
