Movie Review- Gangubai Kathiawadi

Deepika Padukone

Deepika Padukone has acted in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s blockbuster movies like ‘Ramlila’, ‘Padmavat’, ‘Bajirao Mastani’. In 2019, Deepika was spotted outside Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s office. It was then rumored that Deepika and Alia would share the screen or it could be a part of the film as a whole. However, now that ‘Gangubai Kathiyawadi’ has been released, the reality is in front of everyone.


Rani Mukherjee

Rani Mukherjee was also Bhansali’s favorite for the role of Gangubai. According to reports, Bhansali came up with the idea while the film was being cast. Rani and Bhansali worked together in the movie ‘Black’ in 2005. However, Bhansali is said to have approached Priyanka Chopra as it was not possible to persuade Rani for ‘Gangubai Kathiyawadi’.

Priyanka Chopra

It is rumored that Priyanka Chopra was also approached for the role of Ganguly. The rumor spread so much that Priyanka had to clarify. He told the Mumbai Mirror in an interview, “I have no idea where these things are coming from. I have not signed any Hindi film because I am doing two films in the US and will do one more next year. My whole time is devoted to this. “

Parth Samthan

According to media reports, the role played by Shantanu Maheshwari in ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ was offered to TV actor Parth Samthan. There was a lot of talk at the time that Parth was going to make her Bollywood debut with Alia Bhatt. But within a few days the discussion was over and it was confirmed that Parth was not going to do the role.

Ajay Devgn charged such a big fee for a small role in ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’?

Nawazuddin Siddiqui

Actor Jim Sarbhe is in a pivotal role in ‘Gangubai Kathiyawadi’. He is in the role of a journalist who accompanies Ganguly in his fight. It is said that the role was earlier offered to Nawazuddin Siddiqui but he could not work due to debt problem.
