The movie is set to clash with Prabhas' Radhe Shyam. Alia has been busy with the filming of Gangubai Kathiawadi since the lockdown in Mumbai eased. The actor was spotted making her way to the sets numerous times in the last few months.
For the unversed, Gangubai Kathiawadi is adapted from a chapter of Hussain Zaidi’s book, Mafia Queens of Mumbai. The biographical drama sees Alia play the titular role, a fierce brothel owner who was rumoured to have had gangsters as her clients. The movie also stars Ajay Devgn, who is playing the role of a mobster that falls in love with Gangubai while teaching her the trade.
Gangubai Kathiawadi marks Alia's first collaboration with Bhansali. Apart from Gangubai Kathiawadi, Alia also has Brahmastra in the pipeline. The Karan Johar-backed movie sees Alia star opposite beau Ranbir Kapoor, with Ayan Mukerji in the director's seat.
