She keeps connections with the underworld and there known as ‘Madam of Kamathpura’.
Sanjay Leela Bansali is hitting again as a director after two years. His last directorial Padmaavat starring Ranveer Singh, Deepika Padukone, and Shahid Kapoor was released in the year 2018. Padmaavat became the second-highest grosser Bollywood Film of 2018 after Sanju by earning approximately 585 Crores against a budget under 200 Crores.

Gangubai Kathiawadi revolves around Gangubai played by Alia Bhatt who has shown her acting feathers in many films. In her recent film Sadak-2 she looks doing acting with half hearted. She is a very talent girl as far acting is concerned but people are against her being alleged part of nepotism in the Bollywood. Let us see how Gangubai reacts in the public.
Alia Bhatt being a star kid gets an easy entry in Bollywood. However, she has proved her acting talent right from her debut in Student of the year (2012). Thereafter, we have seen her improving herself with every new movie. Dear Zindagi (2016), Badrinath Ki Dulhania (2017), Raazi (2019), Gully Boy (2019) and Kalank (2019) prove her talent without any doubt. Alia has done a very good job in Gangubai Kathiawadi.
After Baadsaho (2017), Ajay Devgn and Emraan Hashmi are coming up together. Earlier they alliance in Once Upon a Time in the year 2010 and the film became one of the Top 10 Highest Grossing Bollywood Films of 2010. However, Ajay Devgn is in special appearance in Gangubai Kathiawadi has has nothing to do much in the film.
Actors like Vijay Raaz and Pahwa are excellent.
