Juhi, Madhuri together in 'Gulab Gang'

Mumbai, Nov 20, 2012 (IANS

After roping in Madhuri Dixit for "Gulab Gang", now filmmaker Anubhav Sinha has cast Juhi Chalwa for the film and says it will be great to see them together for the first time on big screen.

"Actually, there were two reasons to cast Juhi Chalwa 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," Sinha, who is producing the film, told IANS.

"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 added.

Inspired by Sampat Pal-led Gulabi Gang in Bundelkhand, Uttar Pradesh, which fights for the rights of women in the region, the film will be directed by Soumik Sen. Sinha told IANS that they will start filming in December and the "first schedule will be shot in Bombay".

"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," he added.

Earlier, the plans were to release "Gulab Gang" on Women's Day, but Sinha said that "things got a little delayed and now I feel the film will release after March."
"Gulab Gang" also stars Mahie Gill and Shilpa Shukla.
