Director Anubhav Sinha has cast Juhi Chawla for the film Gulabi Gang after Madhuri Dixit 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 Chawla 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. 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 "
The film is said to be inspired by Sampat Pal Gulabi Gang in Bundelkhand, Uttar Pradesh, which fights for the rights of women in the region, the film will be directed by Soumik Sen. Sampat Pal got more famous and recognition after she entered Bigg Boss season 6. The film goes on floors in December and the first schedule will be shot in Mumbai. Anubhav Sinha further added "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."
The film also stars Shilpa Shukla and Mahie Gill and will hit the screens in the month of March.
