2020 has started on a bang note for Alia Bhatt and fans with the striking promo of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi, being unveiled yesterday.

The Twitter handle of Bhansali Productions shared the first look posters with a caption that read, "Strength". However, Gangubai Kathiawadi's first look makes it look like it's going to be another feather in the actress' cap.

The posters show younger and older versions of Gangubai Kathiawadi, played by Alia. Her dark kohled eyes and a big red bindi with a choker necklace, nose pin and earrings, shows that she is here to rule. Fear! One look, a thousand emotions. Her fierce gaze will pinch through your soul. She is seen wearing a blue blouse and a red skirt with hair plaited in two. A pistol is also placed on the table.

Alia Bhatt is looking intriguing in the first look poster.

Gangubai Kathiawadi is based on journalist Hussain Zaidi's book Mafia Queens of Mumbai that chronicles the lives of sex workers in Mumbai's Kamathipura.

The film is directed and co-produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali. Ranveer Singh, who co-starred with Alia in Zoya Akhtar's 2019 film Gully Boy, commented: "Here she is indeed Lulu the gangster".

Actress Alia Bhatt is working with SLB for the first time. Earlier, the actor-director duo had announced "Inshallah", also starring Salman Khan, but the film was shelved due to creative differences between the Salman and Bhansali.

While details regarding the entire cast still remains under the wraps, Vijay Raaz will be seen playing a pivotal role in the film.
