Gangubai Kathiawadi shoot on a 12 crore set comes to a screeching halt, release likely to be postponed
Sanjay Leela Bhansalis Gangubai Kathiawadi , which wasbeing shot on a 12-croreset at Film City (Goregaon, Mumbai), has ceasedall shooting post the Coronavirus scare. Ifthesuspension of all shooting continues , it is likelythat theset depicting a Mumbai chawl inthe1960s would have to be demolishedtherebyleading toheavy lossesforthefilms producers. Asource inthe know informs, Gangubai Kathiawadi is one ofthe least costlyBhansali Productions. Alia Bhatt is theonly star and shehas been paid a fraction of what Salman Khan was to bepaid for Bhansalis(aborted project) Inshallah.Most of the production costs were going into theconstruction of sets and production value. Doing a set all over again would be substantial abudgetrysetback. Because ofthespiraling budgetandthedelayed schedule it seemsunlikely that Gangubai Kathiawadiwould release as per schedule in September 2020.
