Actress Juhi Chawla who will be depicting a negative character in ‘Gulaab Gang’ is quite worried, if she will be accepted by her fans. The film is inspired by a real-life group of women activists in the Bundelkhand region and talks about empowerment of women. This is also the first time that she will be working with her one time rival Madhuri Dixit. Juhi thinks that the story of ‘Gulaab Gang’ is very strong and such projects are not done every year.
As per sources Juhi said, “When the director narrated me the script, I liked it but felt was he sure of casting me in this role… Or has he mistaken me for some other actress. I was scared and worried if I would be able to do this role… Would I be accepted. I did not realize I would be able to play villain on screen. I hope it does well. Before this film, I was never offered a negative role… I am happy this film came my way and I did it. I said yes to the film because of two reasons – Madhuri was in it and secondly the script. She is a wonderful actress and good looking.”
Gulabi Gang is a women’s group from Uttar Pradesh’s Bundelkhand region that works for well-being of women facing violence, domestic and social problems. Co-written by director Soumik Sen and producer Anubhav Sinha, the film releases in March this year.
