Alia Bhatt pens heartfelt note after winning best actress award at 68th Filmfare Awards
Mumbai/IBNS: Bollywood actor Alia Bhatt roared into the box office early in 2022 with Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Gangubai Kathiawadi, which earned big at the 68th Filmfare Awards on Thursday.
Among 10 honours which were won by the film, Alia bagged the best actress award for essaying Gangubai in Gangubai Kathiawadi.
After the success, Alia shared a long post on Instagram where she narrated her experience of shooting the film not failing to mention her own family, husband and of course Bhansali.
An excerpt of her post reads, "The day we wrapped Gangubai Kathiawadi, with shaking hands and heavy hearts, I remember telling my wonderful crew. 'No matter the outcome, just the experience of shooting the film, learning and growing under the guidance of Sanjay sir - that's my blockbuster.' I left that set a different person - and that was ONLY because of this amazing team!"
"Gangu .. meri jaan .. my alter ego, belongs to you Sanjay sir. Thank you for believing in me, so I could believe in myself. I will forever be in your debt! I’ve always said you make the world believe in magic - and if on this journey I can be even half as hard working, half as dedicated and driven as you - I will consider myself very fortunate!"
Gangubai Kathiawadi was the first project where Alia, who played Gangubai in the film, collaborated with Sanjay Leela Bhansali.
The film is a real life story on brothel owner Gangubai Kathiawdi, who used to live in the Kamathipura area of Mumbai.
