Madhuri Dixit, who had played soft roles in her first innings, will be seen in a rough-and-tough character of a dacoit using expletives. Her character in Gulabi Gang is based on the life of Sampat Pal, the founder president of the Gulabi Gang, a group of women dacoits dressed in pink saris that operates in the Bundelkhand region.
Gulabi Gang is being made by Anubhav Sinha. To be prepared for her role, Madhuri is said to have watched films like Ishqiya, Delhi Belly and other recent Bollywood ‘A’ certified films which have in abundance the street-wise abusive language.
Madhuri is said to be excited about her role in Gulabi Gang which will go on floors soon.
