It seems like the wait for much talked about and keenly awaited film Gulaab Gang, featuring Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla just got longer. A few days ago we had reported that Sampat Pal, the leader of the real life Gulaabi Gang, had moved the Delhi High Court petitioning a ban on the release of the film. Now we hear that in its ruling, the Delhi HC has issued a stay on the release of the film across the country in any format censored or uncensored till May 8, 2014.
Apparently, Pal had taken objection to the film, and later filed the said petition, on the grounds that the maker had not sought permission from her for the same, especially considering the fact that the film is based on their life story. Apart from requesting a stall on the release of the film, Pal had also sought financial compensation, saying there are certain scenes in the movie which will affect her reputation.
Directed by debutant director Soumik Sen, Gulaab Gang was slated for release this Friday.
