Alia Bhatt’s Gangubai Kathiawadi made all the right noises since the first look of the film was launched. Now, months after its release, the film by Sanjay Leela Bhansali is scaling new heights. The film will be submitted in various categories at the British Academy Film Awards (BAFTA) 2022. Some of the categories are Best Film, Director, Adapted Screenplay, Lead Actor and Film not in English. Now, ahead of the awards, Sanjay Leela Bhansali gave a masterclass at BAFTA. A glimpse of this was shared by leading lady Alia Bhatt on Instagram.
