Actor Alia Bhatt has resumed shoot of her upcoming film Gangubai Kathiawadi with director Sanjay Leela Bhansali. All work on the film had stopped owing to the coronavirus lockdown. Alia plays a gun-wielding brothel owner in the film.
The first-look of the film has been unveiled in January this year. The film’s shoot had commenced as well and an elaborate set had been created at Mumbai’s Film City. All of it came to a grinding halt in March after the pandemic-related lockdown came into place.
After nearly seven months, the shoot has resumed with Alia and crew reporting on the sets at 7 pm. An unnamed source told the publication that Bhansali has been filming night sequences before the lockdown. To maintain continuity, Sanjay sir picked up the shoot exactly from where he had left it. Since October 1, Alia and the team has been reporting to the set by 7 pm, and the stint goes on till the wee hours of the morning. Although a part of the grand set had been pulled down ahead of the monsoons, the portion resembling Kamathipura had been left untouched. So, the director has been able to shoot without any hiccup.
