Women-centric films seem to be the latest trend nowadays with films like The Dirty Picture and Kahaani being welcomed with open arms by the public and comeback queen Madhuri Dixit is reportedly going to take things forward in her next film.
Sources claim that the dhak dhak diva will be seen essaying the role of a gangster- a Godmother-ish figure in Gulab Gang, a film that marks the directorial debut of Soumik Sen. Inspired by real life incidents, this film is said to be about a gang of women fighting social injustice in the heartland of India. Needless to say, the makers are planning to have the film released on March 8 next year, which is the International Women's Day.
Confirming the news, Ra.One director Anubhav Sinha, who has conceptualized the film alongwith Sen was quoted saying, "Yes, we have signed Madhuri for the film. She will play the protagonist Gulab. We want to start shooting by the end of the year. After the release of RA.One, I was visiting Benaras to finalise the script of my next film, when Soumik came up with the idea and I immediately gave it a go-ahead."
