The film features Bhatt in the lead role. The first teaser of the film was released in February 2021. As the film wrapped its shoot in June 2021, Alia shared on Instagram, “This film and set has been through two lockdowns.. two cyclones.. director and actor getting Covid during the making!!! the troubles the set has faced is another film altogether! But through all that and more.. what I take away is the gigantic life changing experience! Being directed by sir has been a dream all my life, but I don’t think anything would have prepared me for the journey I was on for these two years.. I walk out of this set a diff person today! I love you sir! Thank you for being you .. there is truly NO ONE like you.” Apart from Gangubai Kathiawadi, Alia Bhatt’s upcoming films include Brahmastra, RRR, Rocky Aur Rani Ki Prem Kahani and Darlings.
