As the beautiful month of March sees the first Friday, the winter slowly fades away and turns into spring. The birds are tweeting and the flowers in bloom. The box office brings out five movies this Friday – Gulaab Gang, Queen, Total Siyappa, August Osage County and 300: Rise Of An Empire.

The movie is based on the real life story of Sampat Pal Devi who leads the Gulabi Gang which started in 2006 as an extraordinary group of brave women who took up a fight against injustice.
Our very own dhak dhak girl Madhuri Dixit plays the lead and who would guess that it is the sweet dimpled Juhi Chawla obliging to be the villian. Madhuri has already played strong in ‘Mrityudand’ and a picture released by none other than the actress herself shows her flying in mid air with a sickle.
It is the first time Juhi would be playing a negative role. Would you believe how this sweet-faced girl, who has always played bubbly and cheerful roles, ends up now being a gangster!
