Anubhav Sinha is producing Gulab Gang under the banner of Benaras Media Works and Madhuri Dixit is playing the role of a vigilante leading a gang of women fighting against social injustice. The film is being directed by former film journalist Soumik Sen.
When Tabu was approached to play the politician in the film, she is reported to have turned down the offer. According to sources, years ago, Tabu was offered to play the protagonist in Gulab Gang but the project did not take off owing to financial constraints.
Since the role of politician is as powerful as that of the vigilante, Sen is trying to rope in either Raveena Tandon, Karishma Kapoor or Rani Mukherjee. Meanwhile Mahie Gill and Shilpa Shukla have been finalised to play the gang members.
