Kiran Rao, who has watched the documentary titled Gulabi Gang, based on Sampat Pal and the fiery women of her Gulabi Gang has invited her friends to watch the documentary, directed by Nishtha Jain. The list includes names like Raj Kumar Hirani, Gauri Shinde, Vinod Chopra, Victor, Reema Kagti, Prasoon Joshi and few others.
Kiran Rao had earlier extended her support and turned presenter for the critically acclaimed film, Ship Of Theseus and got the film a theatrical release for it to reach a wider audience. This time around, it is Sohum Shah who has turned presenter for the first ever high profile release of a documentary titled Gulabi Gang, which is based on Sampat Pal and her fiery group who take up the fight against gender violence, caste oppression and widespread corruption in Bundelkhand.
Kiran Rao has watched the film and she feels that it is a must that people watch the film. So, she has invited her friends to watch the documentary, directed by Nishtha Jain. "Gulabi Gang is not just a good film but a really important film. So I wanted to help it gain some attention within the film industry and also in the public space. Hence I am having a screening for a few friends who I am hoping will be as moved as I was by it and will spread the word about it," Kiran said.
The film Gulabi Gang is all set to release on February 21. Also, a feature film on the same vigilante brigade in UP titled Gulaab Gang starring Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla, is scheduled to hit screens on March 7 ahead of the International Womens' Day.
