Sampat Pal, the leader of Gulaabi gang, which has inspired Anubhav Sinha’s ‘Gulaab Gang’ starring Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla, has filed a case against the film at Delhi High Court. Apparently her argument is that the makers don’t have a permission to make a film on her life.
The case joins the list of dozens of others when a development like this has taken place just days before a film’s release. With the film arriving this Friday and prints waiting to be dispatched, especially overseas, filing of the case couldn’t have been more ill timed for Sahara Movie Studios who are presenting the film.
Anubhav Sinha was unavailable for comments. A senior official attached to the film added though, “It is surprising that Sampat has filed this case when in last few months we have said hundreds of times that Gulaab Gang is not based on her story or that of Gulaabi Gang. We would be shortly sharing an official response on this case.”
