    Gangubai Kathiawadi is a unique, one of a kind film. Not just because of Alia Bhatt ’s incredibly versatile performance or because it’s a masterpiece curated by ace filmmaker Sanjay Leela Bhansali . But because it brings us the tale of a woman who decides to keep her head held high, despite facing various hurdles, and makes the most of what she has instead of giving up. The film follows the story of how Gangubai was sold into prostitution by her lover, but she decided to continue holding the reins of her life. In fact, she worked hard to make life of others around her better.

    The film inspired not just fans but even Aamir Khan ’s daughter Ira Khan, who made her directorial debut in 2019 with a theatre production. After watching the film, she took to her official handle to share a powerful note about Gangubai. Ira’s post read: ‘You can develop a fierce will to change the wrong around you because of the trauma you experienced, making you able to ride big waves and overcome many obstacles... even then you don't manage to legalize prostitution.’ She went on to write: ‘“We are meant to work on problems our children will solve. You might find the odd solution here or there.... You will die before your life's work is done." - The Adam Project.’

    She went on to explain, ‘You did manage to stop one builder/organization from tearing down the homes of thousands. Gangubai took the win. She felt genuine gratitude, pride and joy from what she did manage to achieve. Are you able to appreciate your wins?’ That is a message which many of us needed to hear today-- appreciate your wins.
