INDIA: Bollywood’s most cherished actor Alia Bhatt recently stunned everyone with her performance in Gangubai Kathiyawadi. The movie is helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, which talks a lot about it.
Alia’s outstanding approach to the strenuous character bagged her prestigious awards. Now as per multiple media reports, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s directorial Gangubai is set for Oscars and BAFTA campaign.
Actors have always been judged by their acting skills. For some, it comes naturally, and some push themselves a little hard to match the exacting standards.
Thus, the Brahmastra actor created her own space through her acting in Gangubai. The movie was based on a chapter of Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai, and playing a bold character like Gangu is quite difficult.
Alia Bhatt narrates her experience of playing Gangubai
Recently, in an interview, Bhatt opened up about her journey in the movie and how the character remains with her.
She said, “The positive thing I absorbed from her, which is very, very similar to my nature, is that she never lost her youthful innocence, even though she was struggling and being a part of the big bad world. Despite having to play such a powerful role for these ladies, her innocence and tenderness remained intact.”
Alia always kept her innocence intact, which often came as a drawback to her as people didn’t imagine her as any strong character. However, acting in a movie like Gangubai proved her mettle to the world.
Alia further added, “Since I started working, people have often commented on how young I am. Since I was so young, I would frequently feel a bit uneasy about speaking or saying anything because I didn’t feel like I belonged there. It gave me a lot of confidence to speak up, trust my instincts, and say what needed to be said. That’s one thing.”
On the work front, Alia will be seen in Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani, featuring Ranveer Singh, Shabana Azmi, Dharmendra, and Jaya Bachchan in the pivotal role. It is set to release on April 28, 2023. Adding more feathers to her cap, she is also set to make her Hollywood debut with Heart Of Stone.
