Shooting for Madhuri Dixit’s comeback film ‘Gulab Gang’ will begin in october. The film is going to be director Anubhav Sinha’s first movie as a producer. Since the movie is based entirely on woman’s power, Anubhav hopes to wrap things up in time so that the movie can hit the theaters on the international women’s day 2013.
Sinha said, “I’m very excited about Gulab Gang. I’m hoping to release the film on March 8, 2013 on International Women’s Day. The film will go on floors in October.”
The entire cast has been finalized and the names are going to be announced in 10 days.
When asked if the reports about Madhuri asking to change the script were true, Sinha just said he was amused.
“I heard Madhuri (Dixit) is changing the script and all. Madhuri has been part of this project for a year and a half now. We are way ahead now and are discussing her make-up, costumes… so we have moved on to that space. In two months, the film will be rolling. Madhuri is a darling, she is a sweetheart. She doesn’t have to do this. If she wants to write a script, she will write her own. I am amused.”
Madhuri was last seen on screen in ‘Aaja Nachle’ which wasn’t very successful. Since ‘Gulab Gang’ is shot in the rural parts of India Madhuri will go de-glam.
“It’s a film based in the rural part of India. So it can’t be glamorous. It will be as natural as possible,” said Abubhav Sinha, who is also excited about the film’s music and set design.
“We will have seven songs in the film,” he said.
Anubhav Sinha has directed films like Ra.One and Tum Bin.
