Gulaab Gang is set to hit theaters on 7th March 2014 to mark Women’s Day (on 8th March) and we can’t wait. A powerful, female-centric film that conveys a hard-hitting social message, Gulaab Gang sees debut director, Soumik Sen, bring together on screen for the very first time two of Indian cinema’s most lauded actresses: the iconic Madhuri Dixit and inimitable Juhi Chawla who will ignite the silver screen in powerhouse performances.
Here’s something cool we bet you would have never guessed. Talking about Gulaab Gang, director Soumik Sen revealed a connection to Aerosmith, “There is a song by Aerosmith called Pink. It has lyrics that say ‘Pink, it’s like red but not quite’. We associate pink with softness but it can also be angry and fierce and ‘Gulaab’ in Gulaab Gang represents that.”
Proving the power in pink, Gulaab Gang releases on 7th March 2014, produced by Anubhav Sinha, presented and co-produced by Sahara Movie Studios and Bharat Shah, distributed internationally by B4U.

Somewhere in the Hindi heartland, an ashram of sorts has been set up by ‘Rajjo’ (Madhuri Dixit), where women armed with axes and sickles and dressed in pink nine yards mete out evil and seek out justice for one and all, while making hand-ground spices, hand-woven baskets and sarees. But when the party she was campaigning for reveals its true colours, Rajjo knows she has a whole new battle ahead of her, dual-headed by a corrupt force of evil in the guise of ‘Sumitra Devi’ (Juhi Chawla).
Sumitra Devi is an institution whose money, bullet and connection-driven juggernaut of politics is a threat Rajjo hasn’t encountered before. Realising the devil incarnate is soon enough going to swamp, sabotage, silence and encompass the work she has been striving for all these years and draw her into a deadlier web of buyout, Rajjo is forced into battle with this new, unseen evil… at the ballot box. With something she has lived to learn all these years – the strength of soul, song and stick – this season the color of justice will be pink.
