Gulabi Gang is more real than Gulaab Gang, says Kiran Rao

Gulabi Gang, made by Nishtha Jain, traces the life and struggle of Sampat Pal and her group Gulabi Gang that works towards the liberation of women in the state.

‘I have watched this documentary (Gulabi Gang). It inspired me. So I want to support this documentary,’ Kiran told reporters here.

The acclaimed filmmaker who earlier had supported Anand Gandhi’s film The Ship of Theseus held a special screening of Gulabi Gang at a suburban theatre on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Gulaab Gang, a film loosely based on Sampat Pal’s life is also coming up. Directed by Anubhav Sinha, it features Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla in the lead roles.

Talking about Gulaab Gang, Kiran said the film has only derived inspiration from Sampat Pal. However, Gulabi Gang is more real and original.
