Before Vijay Raj in Gangubai Kathiawadi, sometimes Bollywood eunuch characters have turned heads!


After the trailer for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s Gangubai Kathiawadi movie came out, three characters have drawn a lot of attention. Alia Bhatt is in the lead role of Gangubai, so it’s only natural that there would be a lot of discussion about her. But people also talk about Ajay Devgan and Vijay Raj. Ajay Devgan stars as Mumbai mobster Don Karim Lala in the film, which hits theaters on February 25. The most impressive character in the trailer has come out of Vijay Raj.

Vijay Raj plays the role of a eunuch named Raziabai who is a prostitution dealer in Kamathipura. Alia Bhatt, who entered the business, challenges its supremacy. Bhansali’s Gangubai is inspired by a true story, which is based on a chapter in the book Queens of Mumbai by S Hussain.

Vijayraj in Gangubai

There is no doubt that Vijay Raj is one of the best Bollywood actors who has gained recognition for his work. It is the wonder of his acting that he has been seen carrying many movies on his shoulder single-handedly. A flop movie like Abhishek Bachchan’s Run was seen a lot just because of Vijay’s work. The views received on YouTube for all parts of the race are proof of this. However, once again Vijay Raj can be seen heading towards Bhansali. Her avatar as Razia Bai, shown in the trailer, currently indicates the same thing. By the way, even before Vijay Raj, many famous Bollywood actors played the roles of eunuchs. Whenever such characters appeared, they managed to grab people’s attention.

Let us know about some of those Bollywood eunuch characters before Vijay Raj in Gangubai who were applauded by different famous actors on screen.
