After the trailer of Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi was released, many people are now eagerly waiting to watch Alia Bhatt’s unique avatar in the film planned to release on February 25.
However, in Gangubai’s family, her purported adopted son Babu Raoji Shah and her granddaughter Bharti are not pleased about Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn led movie.
For the uninitiated, Gangubai’s purported adopted son Babu Raoji Shah had filed a petition against the film Gangubai Kathiawadi back in 2021. A Mumbai court had even summoned director Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Alia Bhatt in the case.
However, the Bombay High Court had refused to stay the release of Gangubai Kathiawadi. Instead, it granted an interim stay on the criminal defamation proceedings against the filmmakers. The case, however, is still pending.
Babu Raoji Shah said that the filmmaker had turned his mother into a prostitute. As a result, people are now saying inexplicable things about his mother.
According to Gangubai’s family lawyer, Narendra, the whole family has been shocked seeing the trailer. He also said that Gangubai’s portrayal is vulgar, wrong, and baseless.
The family has accused the filmmaker of showing a social activist as a prostitute and lady don.
Meanwhile, Gangubai’s granddaughter Bharti said that the makers had defamed her family out of greed for money, which is not acceptable. She also blamed the filmmakers for not taking the family’s consent before going ahead with the project.
Gangubai Kathiawadi had adopted four children there – two daughters, Shakuntala Ranjit Kawi (Bharti’s mother) and Sushila Reddy, and two sons, Babu Raoji Shah and Rajinikanth Raoji Shah.
