Gangubai Kathiawadi release date announced
The film stars Alia Bhatt as Gangubai, a real-life gangster and brothel owner who rose in the 60s
Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi will release in theatres on January 6, 2022. Set in Mumbai, the film stars Alia Bhatt as Gangubai, a real-life gangster and brothel owner who rose in the 60s. It is based on a chapter from the book Mafia Queens of Mumbai by Hussain Zaidi.
Gangubai was earlier scheduled to release on September 1 but got pushed due to the covid-19 second wave. So far, it is the first Hindi film release of 2022, followed by the Akshay Kumar-starrer Prithviraj on January 21.
Gangubai also stars Shantanu Maheshwari, Vijay Raaz, Seema Pahwa, and others. Ajay Devgn has a special appearance in the film.
Alia Bhatt's last release was Sadak 2 in 2020. She is making her Telugu debut in SS Rajamouli's RRR. Back in August, Alia finished filming for Darlings, her debut production. She will also be seen in Brahmastra, co-starring Ranbir Kapoor, and Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, with Ranveer Singh.
