Everyone knows how Kiran Rao extended her support and turned presenter for the critically acclaimed film, 'Ship Of Theseus' and got the film a theatrical release for it to reach wider audience.
This time around, it is Sohum Shah who has turned presenter for the first ever high profile release of a documentary titled 'Gulabi Gang', which is based on Sampat Pal and the fiery women of her 'Gulabi Gang' - who take up the fight against gender violence, caste oppression and widespread corruption in Bundelkhand.
Kiran Rao has watched the film and she feels that it is a must that people watch the film. So, she has invited her friends to watch the documentary, directed by Nishtha Jain.
The list includes names like Raj Kumar Hirani, Gauri Shinde, Vinod Chopra, Victor, Reema Kagti, Prasoon Joshi and few others.
Said Kiran Rao, "Gulabi Gang is not just a really good film, I think its a really important film, and so I wanted to help it gain some attention within the film industry and also in the public space. So I'm having a screening for a few friends who I am hoping will be as moved as I was by it, and will spread the word that its in the theaters tomorrow."
'Gulabi Gang' is slated to release on 21st Feb 2014.
