This is the third time for Alia at the Berlin Film Festival. She was in Berlin with Imtiaz Ali’s 'Highway' at the beginning of her career in 2014. Then again in 2019 with  Zoya Akhtar’s 'Gully Boy', Alia was in Berlin having the time of her life.

She is in the fun mode in Berlin, ready to field questions on her hard-hitting but ebullient film about the rise of a sex worker to the position of power and dominance.

Informs a source, “Alia is going to be the voice of the film in Berlin while  Sanjay Bhansali has decided to take a backseat. She has done her homework and research on the rigorous q and sessions that will follow the two press screenings of Gangubai Kathiawadi on Tuesday and Wednesday. She is likely to be grilled about the lives of sex workers and she  is  ready for it.”

'Gangubai Kathiawadi' releases in cinemas on February 25.
