Alia Bhatt starrer Gangubai Kathiawadi, which is being directed by filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali, has been much-talked-about ever since the film was announced. The first look poster showing Alia Bhatt in a never-seen-before avatar with a nose pin and a huge bindi left fans intrigued. The Coronavirus pandemic brought everything to a standstill, however, gradually, shoots of films and TV shows are all set to resume. Gangubai Kathiawadi’s shooting had also come to a halt, and reports of the set being demolished were circulating. However, contrary to the report, the set was now seen getting a rain cover. Looks like the film is gearing up to resume shoot once again!
A few weeks ago, a report in Mid-Day stated that Sanjay Leela Bhansali called for the set to be demolished as it was unused for five weeks at Film City studios. It stated that after much deliberation it was decided that recreating the set would probably be a cheaper alternative than keeping it standing in these uncertain circumstances. However, it looks like there has been a change in the decision as the set is now being covered completely to protect it from rain damage.
Mumbai Mirror reported about the set getting a rain cover and that about 10-12 workers were spotted erecting scaffolding to safeguard it. The workers maintained social distancing as they nailed the scaffolding.
Meanwhile, according to a report in Koimoi, about 70 percent of Gangubai Kathiawadi has been shot and the makers will try concluding the remaining part as soon as they can. A source revealed, “They are presently working out a plan for the shoot and are aiming to resume by July end. Being the perfectionist that Sanjay is, he has utilized this lockdown time to prep for the remainder of the shoot.” ALSO READ: Gangubai Kathiawadi: Kartik Aaryan Wants To Co-star With Alia Bhatt, Actor Reveals What’s Stopping Him
