Madhuri Dixit was initially cast as the lead actress in Gulab Gang, but since the script demanded another powerful actress, Anubhav Sinha decied to cast Juhi Chawla too.
Can it get any better? Madhuri and Juhi, both of them were top actresses in the late 80’s and 90’s but they never shared screen space together. And maybe Anubhav Sinha has already got it right, with directing both the powerful performers in Gulab Gang. Anubhav thought of Juhi when he watched Son Of Sardar, for which Juhi has been applauded for her superb acting.
Anubhav was in high regard of both the female leads while talking to the media. He said: “Gulab Gang is about two iconic female characters. 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.”
According to Anubhav, the film is an action-drama with two women at loggerheads. And that’s why he needed two actresses who could give their best performances.
Madhuri Dixit has already started working for the film, she is busy selecting her costumes and getting the right look for the role. Juhi is very excited about the film. The movie also stars actress Mahi Gill and Shilpa Shukla, who are also powerhouses of acting.
Gulab Gang is based on a true incident and an all-female gang called ‘Gulabi Gang’ from Uttar Pradesh’s Bundelkhand region. The gang stands for women suffering from domestic violence and other social problems.
