“Gulaab Gang” will release tomorrow after all, says court
Actresses Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla‘s film ‘Gulaab Gang’, that had its release stayed by Delhi High Court, when a plea was lodged by Sampat Pal, on whose life the movie closely resembles, will release as scheduled tomorrow, decided the Delhi High Court today.
According to sources, yesterday the court stayed the release of the film till May 8 on the basis of a plea filed by Sampat Pal, leader of the real life Gulabi Gang that closely resembles the characters in the film. The film’s producers too filed a plea to release the movie as scheduled.
Sampat Pal, the leader of Gulabi Gang a group that fights for the rights of women in UP’s Banda district, had appealed to the high court saying the filmmakers did not ask her permission before making the movie. She also sought financial compensation, saying there are certain scenes in movie which would affect her reputation.
The film’s associate producer Mushtaq Sheikh has just tweeted that the court has lifted the stay order and is all set to release tomorrow.
