Film maker Soumik Sen revealed a startling fact about his movie “Gulaab Gang” which is purely female centric, that if not for Madhuri Dixit and Anubhav Sinha, “Gulaab Gang” may have never been made.
According to sources , Soumik said, “It wasn’t as easy to get started since “Gulaab Gang” is not conventional film. Anubhav was the one who came to me as a strong pillar of support. Otherwise I was being so much dissuaded from the very beginning to make this film. Koi kehta tha ki hero leke aayo, doosra kehta tha ki picture ki commercial viability nahi hai. However I had a job in hand to make sure that there is ample entertainment on the platter, be it through sheer performances, dialoguebaazi or the action.”
The other confidence booster for Soumik was the Dhak Dhak girl Madhuri Dixit . Soumik further added that Mad’s after hearing the script said ‘achcha hai, karte hain’. For a man like me who is a nobody and hasn’t done any terrific work in the past, it was a confidence booster in itself for someone of Madhuri’s stature to show interest in my film. With Anubhav and Juhi Chawla joining as well, I knew we were on the right track.”
