how is the story of the film
The story of the film is based on Ganga Harjivandas aka Gangubai (Alia Bhatt), who aspires to become a heroine in films. To fulfill this dream, she runs away with her lover to Mumbai and where her lover sells her in Kamathipura for just Rs 500. A simple girl who aspires to become a heroine becomes Gangubai from Ganga. Meanwhile, he gets the support of Rahim Lala (Ajay Devgan). He makes Gangu as his sister. For the rights of the women of the infamous streets, Gangu reaches even to meet the Prime Minister of India.
The life of the women of the infamous streets has been presented in the film in a very good way. An attempt has been made to show the plight of the girls of the kotha through the scenes of the film, such as when Gangu enrolls some girls of her kotha in the school with the intention of teaching them, but after some time the schoolmates throw those girls out of the school. Taxes are sent back home.
The songs and music of the film were well received. With this, Alia Bhatt’s acting won everyone’s heart. The dialogues spoken by him took the film to the heights of success. Like when she asks the forum that we do not differentiate between rich-poor, fair-black and Hindu-Muslim, then why is there this distinction with us. The pain of Badnaam Gali is clearly visible from this dialogue. The film has done business of more than 200 crores.
Currently, Alia Bhatt is in limelight these days due to her pregnancy. Her film Brahmastra is also releasing on 9 September, in which she will be seen sharing the screen for the first time with Ranbir Kapoor.
