Story of Gangubai Kathiawadi (2020) Movie:
According to the book ‘Queens of Mumbai’ written by Hussain Zaidi, Gangubai Kothewali is the matriarch of Kamathipura in Mumbai. She owned a brothel in Mumbai and she was considered to be the most powerful woman of that time. But her life was not like that. She had to struggle a lot for her own existence.
Gangubai’s dream was to become a film actress in the Bollywood film industry. She was from a well-known family in Kathiawar. There she used to study in a local school. But at the age of 16, she made a huge mistake by loving the wrong man. She fell in love with Ramnik Lak. Ramnik Lal was her father’s accountant. She ran with him in Mumbai with the hope of accomplishing her dream. But Gangubai’s husband Ramnik Lal sold her for Rs 500 at a brothel and pushed her into prostitution. All her dreams of becoming an actress were shattered into pieces.
She started working in a brothel where many popular and dangerous criminals became her customer. When a member of Karim Lala’s gang raped her, Gangubi went to Karim Lala’s place to seek justice. She even made Karim Lala her brother by tying a rakhi to him. Karim Lala handed over the responsibility of the Kamathipura area to his Rakhi sister. Gradually she rose her power and influence with her strong connection to the underworld and became one of the ‘Mafia Queens.’
This most legendary brothel madam was the fiercest lady of that time. But she never kept any girl in the brothel without her consent. She cared for them like a mother. She spent her whole life advocating for the rights of sex workers. She raised her voice against the removal of Mumbai’s prostitute market. Gangubai even had a meeting with Jawahar Lal Nehru. There she talked about rights and problems of sex workers to him. Jawahar Lal Nehru was very impressed by her wisdom and brave approach.
