Gangoobai is a film about a Maid-in-Matheran who has lived a life with simple aspirations, until one day she finds a new purpose of buying an extremely expensive Gara sari. She follows her dream to the big city of Mumbai and changes the lives of the people she interacts with.
At the screening, we also had a very special conversation between Priya Krishnaswamy, the director of the film and Zenobia Davar, Mumbai’s “Gara lady”. Zenobia Davar runs her label ZS which creates authentic hand embroidered Gara sarees and bridalwear. She provided the Garas that are seen in Gangoobai!
