As Gangubai Kathiawadi Shooting Comes To A Screeching Halt, Release Likely To Be Postponed

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi  which was  being shot on a 12-crore  set at Film City(Goregaon, Mumbai) has ceased  all shooting post the Corona Virus scare. If  the  suspension of all shooting continues , it is likely  that the  set depicting a Mumbai chawl in  the  1960s would have to be demolished  thereby  leading to  heavy losses  for  the  film’s producers.

A  source in  the know informs, “ Gangubai Kathiawadi   is one of  the least costly  Bhansali productions. Alia Bhatt is the  only star and she  has been paid a fraction of what Salman Khan was to be  paid for Bhansali’s  (aborted project) Inshallah. Most of   the production costs were going  into the  construction of sets and production value..Doing a set all over again would be substantial a  budgetry  setback.”

Because  of    the  spiraling budget  and  the  delayed schedule it seems  unlikely that  Gangubai Kathiawadi  i  would release as  per schedule in September 2020.
