This is for the first time the duo will be seen coming for a film together. Alia Bhatt is already winning the hearts of the audiences with collaboration with renowned director Sanjay Leela Bhansali again.

Bhatt will now be seen portraying Gangubai, a brothel owner and the matriarch of Kamathipura in Mumbai in the film, which is based on the story that appears in S Hussain Zaidi’s Mafia Queens of Mumbai.

According to the sources the film was initially offered to Priyanka Chopra Jonas. Although that did not work out, Bhatt grabbed the opportunity to play this bold character.

This is also Bhansali’s first film that features a strong female lead although earlier it was the director’s 2005 film Black, starring Rani Mukerji, which also placed a female character at the center of the narrative.

One of the most interesting facts about this movie is that this is the first-ever SLB film shot and to be released at this speed.  Bhansali usually takes a long time to complete his films. But with ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, he is going too fast as he wants to release it this year because ‘Inshallah’ didn’t work out. ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, went on floors in the last week of December 2019 and is scheduled to release on 11 September 2020.

After her amazing award-winning performances in ‘Udta Punjab’, ‘Gully Boy’, and ‘Raazi’ fans are happy and excited to see a new masterpiece on the big screens real soon now in form of ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’.

All these 3 films did really well at the box office and loved by audiences.  He is also busy shooting his next projects for 2020. Doing all this, he could not give much time to his family. Recently, he also admitted this in a video where he and his wife Tahira Kashyap was seen interviewing each other.

He said jokingly that he was so busy with the work that he had to come on this show to talk to his wife. The video was full of questions and answers where they both opened up about what they feel about their marriage, how their marriage is special and how Tahira’s encounter with cancer made them even stronger. Ayushmann also said that his wife is his role model.


To begin with, Tahira asked Ayushmann that when he realised that he is in love with her to which he replied that it was the mere age of 17-18. Tahira told in this video that, both of them were in the same physics tuition and she and her friend had a common crush on him. They didn’t know his name but because he used to wear a green jacket, they used to call him froggy.

One of the questions that Ayushmann asked Tahira was if she thinks Ayushmann has changed after the success or not. Tahira answered very wisely that everyone changes with time and she think her husband has changed for better. They also talked about how their marriage is special because they are always there for each other.

In this show, Tahira recalled how Ayushmann, her parents, Ayushman’s brother and sister-in-law, Dr. Mandar ( Tahira’s Doctor) was there for her throughout her journey while she was being treated from cancer. 

Ayushman and Tahira have been married for 12 years. They have two kids, Vurajveer and Varushka. On the work front, Ayushmann is gearing up for his 2020 films Gulabo Sitabo and Shubh Mangalam Zyada Savdhan. Tahira will be directing a movie in 2020 named as  Kwatha.
