November 09, 2022 | by Kinjal Panchal

Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi shook the nation with its hard-hitting plot, rusty setting, dialogues and of course, Alia Bhatt’s performance! Alia’s potential as an actress was truly recognised with her role in this film. The amazing transformation she underwent to get into the skin of Gangubai. In fact, not just in India, the film was highly acclaimed in other south-east Asian countries like Malaysia and Thailand as well. And it looks like the makers of the film want to scale higher as they are now beginning their campaign to get the film nominated for the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA Awards).
