Siddhartha Dave, Bhansali Productions’ lawyer, has pledged to consider the suggestion with his client. The hearing has been postponed till tomorrow.

The claimed adoptive son of Gangubai, Babu Raoji Shah, has launched a lawsuit against the film. The Bombay High Court has refused to stay Gangubai Kathiawadi’s release. Talking to AajTak.in, Babu Raoji Shah said, “My mother has been turned into a prostitute. People are now saying inexplicable things about my mother.”

The usage of the area name in Gangubai Kathiawadi was also challenged in the Bombay High Court by Maharashtra MLA Amin Patel, a Kamathipura native.
