Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi will release on February 25. Before that, the film starring Alia Bhatt will have its world premiere at the 72nd Berlin International Film Festival.
Gangubai Kathiawadi's release has been pushed several times over the last one year. It was earlier set to be released on February 18, but is now arriving a week later.
