Is Kiran Rao supporting Nishtha Jain’s Gulabi Gang instead of Madhuri Dixit starrer Gulaab Gang?

Aamir Khan’s wifey seems to be mighty impressed with Nishtha Jain’s documentary on Gulabi Gang

It is an open war between Madhuri Dixit-Juhi Chawla starrer Gulaab Gang and Nishtha’s Gulabi Gang. The former is a commercial film, while the latter is a small budget documentary film. And it looks like Bollywood has already started taking sides. Fighting against Madhuri and Juhi is none other than Aamir Khan’s wife – Kiran Rao. Yes, you heard us right!

Kiran has watched Gulabi Gang and she feels that it is a must that people watch the film. So, she has invited her friends which includes names like Raj Kumar Hirani, Gauri Shinde, Vinod Chopra, Victor, Reema Kagti, Prasoon Joshi and few others to watch the documentary.

Gulabi Gang is not just a really good film, I think it’s a really important film, and so I wanted to help it gain some attention within the film industry and also in the public space. So I’m having a screening for a few friends who I am hoping will be as moved as I was by it, and will spread the word that its in the theaters tomorrow,” says the Dhobhi Ghat director.

Since both Gulaab Gang and Gulabi Gang has ladies in pink fighting against gender based violence, caste oppression and widespread corruption – comparisons are bound to happen and it’s natural that people will pick their favorite. But will the fictional film win over realistic film? Well, all we can do is just wait and watch.Subscribe to me on YouTube

    I will watch Madhuri’s Gulaab gang.. Sampat Pal says she fight for woman. But she is not respecting Madhuri a Woman. The film is showing Woman against woman. Same is happening in real life too. Sampat pal just want fame. The one who wants social welfare never seeks fame like Sampat Pal. Females like Kiran Bedi, Rani of Jhansi, Sushmita Sen, Indira Gandhi, even Madhuri, Sridevi, Vidya Balen and many bollywood actresses shows an inspiration for woman across country, I always respected Sampat pal because she is standing against Madhuri, is showing how she disrespected woman.
