Alia asked Bhansali in the interview when she finally let out a sigh of relief after the film’s release. He said: “This moment happened in Berlin. We saw the movie there, we did our first press conference and I enjoyed that moment. I think I was a little more confident because you were sitting next to me and talking, non-stop. There I felt it was taken correctly and I made people stand up and applaud for the next five minutes. “
Bhansali also had high praise for Alia and her role in the film. “This film is important for Indian cinema because here it was a show that I think will be celebrated for the next 50-100 years. It could be on the same level as Nargis Ji in Mother India, on the same level as Seema Biswas in Bandit Queen, Meena Kumari in Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam. This is the fourth show I would talk about in the same league. So this movie mattered. “Here is a girl who gets a whole movie on her shoulder,” he said.
Nargis, Seema and Meena Kumari are among the biggest acting actresses in India. All three won the Filmfare Best Actress Award for their performance in these films.
Alia plays the mistress of a brothel in Gangubai Kathiawadi, which is coming to power as the leader of the region. The film also stars Ajay Devgn, Vijay Raaz, Seema Pahwa and others.
