The film’s director Sanjay Leela Bhansali will be celebrating his birthday today, by unveiling the teaser of this much in news project. Before the teaser-release, Bhatt, who plays the titular role of Gangubai Kathiawadi in the film, took to Instagram to tease her fans with a poster that reveals her look in the film, and announced the film’s release date. This film is supposed to be Bhansali’s biggest project till date.

On February 18, The Mumbai City Civil Court dismissed the plea that restricted the permanent sale of publishing, selling, or creating third-party rights on authors S Hussain Zaidi and Jane Borges novel, Mafia Queens of Mumbai. The book apparently contains the story of Gangubai Kathiawadi in a few of its chapters.

Gangubai Kathiawadi director Sanjay Leela Bhansali, on behalf of the Bhansali Productions and his film’s lead actor Alia Bhatt had also filed a notice of motion as a defendant, seeking the rejection of the suit.

The suit was filed by Gangubai Kathiawadi’s purported adopted son, Babuji Shah. He claimed that the novel presents defamatory information against Kathiawadi and that it tarnishes her reputation and damaged her family’s right to privacy. Read more on this here.
