Anubhav Sinha’s forthcoming ‘Gulab Gang’ is much into news as it marks the comeback of Madhuri Dixit in the film industry. The film is inspired by Sampat Pal-led Gulabi Gang in Bundelkhand, Uttar Pradesh, which fights for the rights of women in the region. Directed by Soumik Sen, the shooting of the film will start in December and the first schedule will be shot in Bombay.
Next to Madhuri, the other one time top actress to be roped in by Anubhav is Juhi Chawla and he says that it would be great to see them together for the first time on big screen. “Actually, there were two reasons to cast Juhi Chawla for the film. The very first thing is that it was a creative decision taken by all of us… and we thought it would be great to see two iconic stars – Madhuri and Juhi – together in the film,” says Sinha.
“I couldn’t have pulled off a better cast than the two most iconic female stars, Madhuri and Juhi, together for the first time on Indian screen,” he said adding, “We were working on the looks of the actresses, now we are ready to roll. Since the film is based in rural India, both of them will be seen in a de-glam avatar and will have a rustic look.”
‘Gulab Gang’ also stars Mahie Gill and Shilpa Shukla.
