Kangana Ranaut had previously referred to Alia Bhatt as a "daddy's angel" and a "rom-com bimbo." She previously stated that INR 200 crore will be burned to ashes at the box-office with the release of ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ as the film's biggest flaw was wrong casting.

Kangana Ranaut indirectly praised the film after its release, saying, “I hear some baby steps are being taken in Hindi belt also. With recent female centric film which has a big hero and a super star director. They may be baby steps but they are not insignificant. They will be crucial for theatres which are on ventilators here. Great.”

The Bhansali film, which was released in theatres on Friday (February 25), has grossed around INR 38.50 crore in its opening weekend.
