The Delhi High Court had stayed the release of Soumik Sen‘s upcoming film Gulaab Gang, on Wednesday, after Sampat Pal, on whom the film is reportedly based, sought restraining orders on the film’s release however, the HC has now decided that the film will release as scheduled, on March 7.
Sampat Pal, the leader of Gulabi Gang had moved the HC, saying that the makers of the movie didn’t take permission from her, before making the film. On the basis of her plea, the court stayed the film’s release till May 8.
However, today the film’s makers moved a larger bench of Delhi HC against the order staying the film’s release. They argued that Sampat’s intentions were doubtful as she moved the court at the last moment to gain publicity. Post hearing the makers, the Delhi HC llifted the stay order on the film.
Produced by Anubhav Sinha, Gulaab Gang stars Juhi Chawla and Madhuri Dixit in the lead roles.
