Juhi Chawla joins Madhuri Dixit’s Gulaab Gang

The two powerhouse performers will be seen sharing screen space for the first time in Anubhav Sinha’s Gulaab Gang

Juhi Chawla has given her nod to being part of Anubhav Sinha’s Gulaab Gang. The good news is that people who are desperate to see something substantial onscreen will get to witness a deadly combination of Madhuri Dixit and Juhi’s strong thespian skills.

To be directed by Soumik Sen, the film is slated to release on March 8, 2013, International Women’s Day. And although GG has been in the spotlight for a number of reasons (good and bad) in the fairly recent past, we think it’s commendable that the two dynamos agreed to work with each other without too much reluctance. Looks like female actors, especially the experienced ones, are in no mood to get trapped in the vicious webs of jealousy and rivalry any more. Remember how cordially the once-upon-a-time arch competitors Sridevi and Madhuri greeted each other on the sets of Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa?

Meanwhile, the makers of Gulaab Gang are trying to deal with the real-life Gulab Gang leader Sampat Pal’s volley of allegations. The Bigg Boss 6 eliminated contestant is furious that the gang’s name is being used as the title of the film, even though the director has clarified that the movie is not based on Pal’s life.

All we can do is hope that Sinha’s film sees the light of the day…without the ex-Bigg Boss 6 contestant creating much of a ruckus, of course!
