Gangubai Kathiawadi, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and featuring Alia Bhatt as the eponymous character, was released in theatres yesterday. While the film is doing well at the box office, many people, including actress Kangana Ranaut, were sceptical about it before it was released.
Last week, the Lock Upp host expressed her dissatisfaction with the film’s performance, but in a recent social media post, she expressed her admiration for it. She praised the ‘female oriented film’ and its director, as well as expressing her surprise at the ‘movie mafia.’
Kangana Ranaut commended Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi, which stars Alia Bhatt in the eponymous role, on her Instagram stories earlier today. The Queen actress wrote, “Happy to hear theatres are being revived in South film industry with record-breaking collections. I hear some baby steps are being taken in Hindi belt also. With recent female-centric film which has a big hero and a superstar director. They may be baby steps but they are not insignificant. They will be crucial for theatres that are on ventilators here. Great.”
But that’s not all. In the same story, Kangana Ranaut, further appreciating the ‘movie mafia,’ added, “Never expected that movie mafia will rise to the occasion and do something good. If they do we will be absolutely appreciative. Hoping for the best.”
The Tanu Weds Manu actress had taken to her Instagram stories last weekend and wrote, “This Friday 200 crores will be burnt to ashes at the box office… For a papa (movie mafia daddy) ki Pari (who likes to keep a British passport). Because Papa wants to prove that romcom bimbo can act… biggest drawback of the film is wrong casting…” She also added, “No wonders screens are going to South and Hollywood films. Bollywood is destined to doom jab tak movie mafia has power.”
