Speaking about the film’s digital premiere, Bhansali said in a statement, “Gangubai Kathiawadi is a very special film for me and we are humbled by the phenomenal response it has received globally. While the film has encouraged audiences to come back to the theatres, I am elated that the film will now reach an even wider audience within India and around the world with Netflix.”
