Since the lockdown has been lifted now and people are resuming their work, getting back to their offices, Bollywood is also coming back to the sets of their films.

Alia Bhatt is also back as she has resumed shooting for her upcoming film ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’. The shoots of the film were halted in March owing to the lockdown due to coronavirus.

The first look of the film has been unveiled in January this year. The film’s shoot had commenced as well and an elaborate set had been created at Mumbai’s Film City.


According to the reports published in the leading news portals that after nearly seven months, the shoot has resumed with Alia and crew reporting on the sets at 7 pm. An unnamed source told the publication that director Sanjay Leela Bhansali has been filming night sequences before the lockdown.

The film has been adapted from one of the chapters of Hussain Zaidi’s book, ‘Mafia Queens of Mumbai’. The biographical drama will see Alia as Gangubai Kothewali, a fierce brothel owner who was rumoured to have had gangsters as her clients.
