Gangubai Kathiawadi, a movie based on S. Hussain Zaidi’s book Mafia Queens of Mumbai, touched the hearts of many. Helmed by Sanjay Leela Bhansali, the movie has so many scenes that give you shrills and goosebumps. While there are many scenes that brazenly crush patriarchy to pieces, one particular scene has become a topic of discussion.
To put things in perspective, Gangu (Alia Bhatt) finds her best friend in Kamli (Indira Tiwari), who brought some shine to her gloomy life at the brothel. But, in a heartbreaking incident, Kamli succumbs to her pain after giving birth to a baby.
In the scene, when other women in the brothel are getting Kamli ready for her final journey, Gangubai made a statement that gives goosebumps to the audience. She asks for Kamli’s legs to be strapped tightly because men, even with the dead, cannot be trusted.
