Madhuri Dixit, who will be seen next in the female-centric film Gulaab Gang, says she is thrilled to be a part of a film which raises gender related social issues. The actress, however, said she never imagined a film which had the main good and evil characters being played by women.
“The subject is very relevant, especially when you see what is happening around us. I believe this is the right time for a film like this to be made because it talks about women empowerment. Also, I never imagined a film with both powerful characters, good and evil, being essayed by women. That is the most wonderful aspect of this film,” says Madhuri.
Madhuri is also happy about women’s success in the film industry. She said, “I see a lot of women scriptwriters, directors and even assistant directors, which was not the case earlier. We are fortunate to have directors who write scripts keeping women in mind.”
The film, directed by the debutante director Soumik Sen, is set for a release on March 7th.
