Alia Bhatt saved a child actor from embarrassment on the set of Gangubai Kathiawadi, co-star Seema Pahwa recalls the story – Bollywood

Seema Pahwa, co-star of actor Alia Bhatt in Gangubai Kathiawadi, shared a story about how Alia saved a child actor from embarrassment on the set of the film. The film about the wife of a brothel is directed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali.

Seema, who has appeared in Ayushmann Khurrana films such as Shubh Mangal Saavdhan, Bareilly Ki Barfi and Bala in recent years, recalled the incident in an interview and praised Alia as a thorough professional.

She told Pinkvilla that a scene with Alia and a child actor was filmed at night, but since the scene took place on a bed, she accidentally fell asleep when the child received her cue. “Alia ne ye zimedari apne upar le li. Jab dialog bolna tha, wo usko zara sa hila deti thi aur bacchi dialog bol jaati thi time pe (Alia took responsibility for the child delivering her lines. She would nudge her). Mujhe bahut acha laga uska ye gesture aur bahut hi tareef karungi main uski ke usne itne achi se uss bacchi ke embarrassing ko itne ache se usne saath diya and dant khaane se bachaya (I really appreciated this gesture. It saved the girl from embarrassment and possibly be told.). “

Seema continued to praise Alia, saying, “Bahut hi sanskari ladki hai. Bado ki respect karna aata hai, dusre ache kalakaro ki respect karna aata hai, bahut cooperate karti hai (She is a cultured girl. She respects elders, she respects other actors.) Set pe, abhi tak itna lamba schedule uske saath kiya hai, maine kabhi nahi dekha ke wo set pe late aa rahi ho ya set pe tantrum dikha rahi ho (I spent long hours with her, but she didn’t even arrive late or complain.). Wo pyaari si bachhi hai jo ki bahut hi sincere hai apne kaam ko leke aur wo bhi bahut passionate hai (She is very passionate about her craft.). ”

Gangubai Kathiawadi is based on a chapter from S Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai. She was a woman in a brothel in Kamathipura. The cast and crew returned to work after a seven-month hiatus due to the coronavirus lockdown.

In a mid-day report, a source was quoted as saying, “In order to maintain continuity, Sanjay Sir picked up exactly where he left off. Since October 1st, Alia and the team have been on set by 7 p.m. and the stint lasts until the early hours of the morning. Although part of the large set had been pulled down before the monsoons, the part that resembled Kamathipura was left untouched. So the director could shoot without hiccups. “
