Alia Bhatt Starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi Set To Release First Teaser
Alia Bhatt starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi is set to get its first teaser on February 24. On Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s birthday, his production house will release the first teaser of the upcoming film which is almost complete.
A source revealed “Sanjay feels it is too early to put out a teaser as the release date is yet to be decided. But his team feels his birthday is a good time for his latest film to be introduced to the public. Hence, the first teaser on February 24,” as reported by Bollywood Hungama.
Gangubai Kathiawadi is a biographical crime drama based on a chapter of Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai about Gangubai Kothewali. The film also stars Ajay Devgn, Emraan Hashmi, Shantanu Maheshwari, Seema Pahwa, Vijay Raaz and Huma Qureshi in main roles.
Gangubai Kathiawadi was scheduled to be released in theatres in September 2020 but was pushed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. According to Pinkvilla, Netflix has managed to bag the digital rights of Gangubai Kathiawadi. The streaming giant has reportedly paid a whopping Rs 70 crore for the film.
“The post-release streaming rights of Gangubai have been sold to an OTT giant for a hefty sum in the vicinity of Rs 70 crore. The paperwork is currently underway. The star-cast, grandeur and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s goodwill have led the team of Gangubai towards striking this massive deal. His films have a loyal audience outside India too, and the streaming platform too has a base to cater to them,” the source told Pinkvilla.
