On Wednesday, Alia Bhatt took to her social media and shared her intriguing first look from the much-anticipated biographical ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi.
The ‘Kalank’ actor shared two pictures of herself as the mafia queen. The first picture captures a younger Gangubai, dressed up in a blue blouse and a red skirt with hair plaited in two, sporting intense look on her face with a revolver kept on the table near her.
In the next black and white picture, Alia dons kohl-rimmed eyes and a thick choker necklace, along with nose pin and earrings. Her red bindi is the only thing that adds colour to the dark photo.
Directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Gangubai Kathiawadi is based on the life of Mumbai’s mafia boss Gangubai Kathiawadi, who was a sex worker and eventually became an underworld don in Mumbai.
Gangubai Kathiawadi is said to be based on a portion of author Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens Of Mumbai.
Alia Bhatt co-stars with Ajay Devgn in the movie, who features as a mobster and eventually falls in love with Gangubai while teaching her the tricks of the trade.
Gangubai Kathiawadi is Alia Bhatt’s first movie with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. The film is slated to hit screens on September 11 this year.
