There are very few filmmakers who tell stories the way Sanjay Leela Bhansali does. After Padmaavat, the maverick filmmaker is now all set to enthral the audience with his latest offering, Gangubai Kathiawadi. The biographical crime film stars Alia Bhatt in the titular role. The film has been making grabbing attention ever since its inception, and now after a long wait finally its teaser is out.

Yes, on the occasion of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s birthday, the makers of Gangubai Kathiawadi have dropped their first teaser. As expected, Alia Bhatt is looking fiery and feisty through the lense of Bhansali. The short teaser leaves you asking for more.

In the film, Alia plays the role of Gangubai Kothewali, the madam of a brothel in Kamathipura. The crime film is based on a chapter of Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai.

Gangubai lives by the phrase ‘When life gives you lemons, make lemonade’. Life threw several bricks at Gangubai but she made a bridge out of it and paved her own way. She rules the infamous red-light area, Kamathipura and she fears no one.

After Gully Boy, we once again see Alia use colourful language. “Ijjat se jeena ka. Kisi se darne ka nahi. Na police se na MLA se na mantri se. Na bha##@% se. Kisi ke baap se nahi darne ka,” goes one of the dialogues of Alia in Gangubai Kathiawadi teaser.

While it’s a refreshing change to watch Alia in a never-seen-before avatar and its commendable that she has taken such an unconventional role. However, there are a few scenes where she appears to be too young to pull off such a powerful role.

Well, this is just a teaser and picture abhi baki hai mere dost. Perhaps the actress will prove us all wrong, after all, its Bhansali’s film. So we can expect something unexpected from him.

Apart from Alia, this Bhansali directorial also stars Ajay Devgn (in a cameo), Seema Pahwa, vijay raaz and Shantanu Maheshwari. Earlier it was reported that Emraan Hashmi is also a part of this film. However, the actor in an exclusive chat with Bollywood Bubble revealed that things didn’t work out as planned and hence he couldn’t be a part of the film.
