Bollywood actor Juhi Chawla, who will be seen with ­fellow actor Madhuri Dixit for the first time in Gulaab Gang, says she doesn’t think they will get another chance to work together in future. Madhuri and Juhi were contemporaries in the 1990s but they never worked together during their prime.
“This (Gulaab Gang) was the last chance I got to work with her (Madhuri). I don’t think we will get a chance to work ­together in future again,” Juhi says.
Gulaab Gang has a very strong script and Juhi feels that such stories are not churned out in bulk. “It happens once in a lifetime when we get a script where we can work together with such dedication. I don’t imagine that we will again work (together). That’s why the film is exciting for us as actors,” Juhi says.
She recalls the time when she missed the opportunity to work with Madhuri because of rivalry. “There were times when I had the chance to work with Madhuri, but we were rivals back then and I was like, ‘I will not work with Madhuri at all’,” Juhi says candidly.
“Now I agreed because I felt it would be an amazing cast with an awesome script,” she adds.
Co-written by director Soumik Sen and producer Anubhav Sinha, the film is inspired by a group of women activists in the Bundelkhand region and talks about the ­empowerment of women.
The film’s recently-released action-packed ­trailer has got a thumbs up from fans on the web.
