While the Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla starrer has been creating a buzz, the actual documentary it’s based on will be screened in the city today. An initiative by the Annapurna International School of Film + Media, Kalakriti Art Gallery and the Documentary Circle of Hyderabad, the documentary by Nishtha Jain will be screened at 6 pm at the Preview Theater, Annapurna International School of Film + Media, Road No 2 Banjara Hills. The event is open to all and is free of charge. Following the screening, the director of the movie will participate in a Q&A session with the audience.

Gulabi Gang is 96 minute film released in 2012 which follows the gang’s founder member Sampat Pal on her journey to empower women in Bundelkhand, a district on the border of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

Reeking of devastation, isolation and dejection, a light of hope comes in the form of pink sari-clad women -- the Gulabi Gang. Fighting gender abuse, these women face corrupt policemen and bureaucrats to win justice for women and dalits.

Winner of various awards including the Best Film, Muhr Asia/ Africa Documentary at the Dubai International Film Festival, 2012 and the Amnesty International Award, Planet-doc, Warsaw, 2013, Gulabi Gang was the first Indian documentary to have an international premier.
