Gangubai Kathiawadi, one of the most anticipated films of 2022, has landed in cinemas. The film, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali released in theatres on February 25. The movie is a biographical drama set in the 1960s about a young prostitute, Gangubai, who goes through Trauma and subsequently becomes a prominent face when working for the community.
Since the release of the Gangubai Kathiawadi trailer, many have taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction with the film’s casting. They believed that actresses such as Tabu or Vidya Balan would have been better selections and some also hailed for ‘Boycott Bollywood’ in the name of nepotism. However, after the film’s theatrical release, Twitterati proved that no one other than Alia Bhatt could match the role perfectly.
Twitterati is blown away with Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi. Within hours of the film’s release, fans took to Twitter to give their views on it:
