MUMBAI: The latest visuals from the much-awaited film ‘Gulaab Gang’ shows it’s lead heroine Madhuri Dixit in a never-seen-before avatar!
Dixit, who will reportedly essay the role of women’s rights activist Sampat Pal of Uttar Pradesh in the film, is seen in an edgy, aggressive, fierce avatar. Directed by Soumik Sen, ‘Gulaab Gang’ also stars Juhi Chawla and Mahie Gill in pivotal roles.
The exclusive first visuals from the film portray Madhuri as a fierce protector, with cuts and bruises on her visage. Loose hair and an expression of aggression, and Madhuri looks all set to conquer her attackers.
In another visual, Madhuri is seen in a typical village-belle avatar, a pink sari with a black polka dotted blouse.
Madhuri herself is proud of the fact that she is playing a woman who is not a victim.
“I am happy that I am a part of a film which doesn’t portray women as avenger or victim anymore. It’s quite a strong film and when Soumik Sen (director) narrated me the script, I could not say no to him as I really liked the script. Female are protagonists in the film,” confessed Madhuri.
She emphasised her tough character in the film, when she said: “You will see a completely different side of me. I am playing an aggressive woman here. She is tough. This film gave me a chance to do some stunts too.”
