The 'Kalank' actor shared two pictures of herself as the mafia queen. The first picture captures a younger Gangubai, dressed up in a blue blouse and a red skirt with hair plaited in two, sporting intense look on her face with a revolver kept on the table near her.

In the next black and white picture, Alia dons kohl-rimmed eyes and a thick choker necklace, along with nose pin and earrings. Her red bindi is the only thing that adds colour to the dark photo.

Bhansali Productions also tweeted the first look poster of the film on Twitter and captioned the post with, "Strength. Power. Fear! One look, a thousand emotions. Presenting the first look of Gangubai Kathiawadi. In cinemas 11 September 2020”.   

Helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, 'Gangubai Kathiawadi' marks the first collaboration between him and Alia. This project will also see Bhansali Productions collaborating with Jayantilal Gada's Pen India Limited. The film is based on Hussain Zaidi's book 'Mafia Queens of Mumbai'. The story of the movie revolves around Gangubai Kothewali, a brothel owner and matriarch.

Alia Bhatt co-stars with Ajay Devgn in the movie, who features as a mobster and eventually falls in love with Gangubai while teaching her the tricks of the trade. The film is slated to hit screens on September 11 this year.
