Madhuri to play gangster in Anubhav Sinha 'Gulab Gang'

After signing Vishal Bharadwaj’s ‘Dekh Ishqiya’, Madhuri Dixit has signed her second film ‘Gulab Gang’ where she will play the female protagonist a gangster.  

"We have signed Madhuri for 'Gulab Gang'. She would be playing the lead role of Gulab. She heads the gang of women," Sinha.

The film will be directed by Soumik Sen. Madhuri is quite interested to act in the film. She was highly impressed with the script.

"It was director Soumik Sen who narrated me the story and I really liked it. It was his idea of having Madhuri in the film. He met her and she was also extremely excited about it," he said.

'Gulab Gang' is a story of a gang of women fighting against social injustice.

"It is not a biopic. It is not based on anyone. It is in a way inspired by something that happened in UP. It is a fiction," Sinha said.

Apart from Madhuri, the film will have six other female characters in the film."We have just finalised Madhuri. Soumik had mentioned that he wants to cast Mahie Gill, Shilpa Shukla for other roles. But I don't know if he has met them and things have been finalised or not. Also, we are looking for a female antagonist," he said.  

Produced under Benaras Media Works banner, 'Gulab Gang' would go on floors next year on Womens Day, March 8.
