Gangubai Kathiawadi in new controversy

Alia Bhatt’s film Gangubai Kathiawadi, directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has landed in controversy 10 days before its release date. Gangubai’s family members have approached the court against this film. Family members say that Gangubai has been shown more prostitute than a social worker in this film.

Gangubai’s son Babu Raoji and his granddaughter Bharti are not at all happy seeing Alia Bhatt and Ajay Devgn in the film based on the character of Gangubai. In this regard, a petition was also filed on his behalf in 2021 and the Mumbai court had also summoned Sanjay Leela Bhansali and actress Alia Bhatt in this regard. However, later the court refused to stay the release of the film and also interimly refused to run any criminal defamation case. The matter is still pending.

Mother turned prostitute – Gangubai’s son

Talking to the media, Gangubai’s son said, “My mother was kept as a prostitute. People are now talking nonsense about my mother.” Gangubai’s son’s lawyer said, “The whole family is shocked after the trailer release. The way Gangubai was portrayed is wrong and baseless. This is lousy. You have introduced a social worker as a prostitute. Which family would love this movie? You have shown Gangubai as a witch and a lady don.”

Petition filed against the film in 2021

The lawyer said, “Our fight started only in 2020 when Babu Raoji Shah came to know that a film is being made on Gangubai. Since then the family has been in hiding. They are changing houses. Sometimes dark, sometimes Borivali. Many relatives question this depiction. Asks if Gangubai was really a prostitute and not a social worker. No one is able to live in peace.” Advocates for Gangubai’s family say, “We sent notices to Sanjay Leela Bansali and Hussain Zaidi (from whose book Gangubai was cast). But there has been no response from their side.”

Consent was not taken before making the film – Gangubai’s granddaughter

On the other hand, Gangubai’s granddaughter Bharti said, “The makers of the film have de-famed my family by getting greedy for money. It cannot be accepted at all. The makers have not even taken the consent of the family to make the film nor did anyone come to us for the book.” According to Dainik Bhaskar’s report, Gangubai’s granddaughter says,

“My grandmother used to live in Kamathipura, so did every woman living there become prostitutes. My maternal grandmother had adopted 4 children there, who were children of the prostitute. My mother’s name is Shakuntala Ranjit Kawi, second son’s name is Rajinikanth Raoji Shah, third son’s name is Babu Raoji Shah and fourth daughter’s name is Sushila Reddy. We are from his family. The makers have declared us illegal. When our maternal grandmother did the adoption, its laws were not made at that time.

Bharti says, “We used to proudly tell our grandmother’s stories. But after the release of the trailer, people are asking us if she was a prostitute. My maternal grandmother worked for the salvation of sex workers. But what have these people made of my grandmother.

Please tell that Gangubai adopted 4 children in 1949. Today there are 20 members in his family. With the release of the trailer of the film Gangubai’s family members, who have been living their lives for so many years, have been surrounded by many questions in the society. The family members of Gangubai did not even know that any book had been written on her mother.
