Ok, so now it has been declared loud and clear that Madhuri Dixit's comeback film 'Gulab Gang' won't really have a male lead featuring in it. With producer Anubhav Sinha and first time director Soumik Sen being sure about Madhuri as their single most driving force in this gritty dramatic tale, it is in star contrast to the leading lady's last comeback affair that had fizzled despite the presence of Akshaye Khanna in the enterprise.
"Even though 'Aaja Nachle' was promoted as a Madhuri starrer, presence of Akshaye seemed like a forceful commercial decision that didn't quite work either for the film or for the actress", observes an expert.
However, for 'Gulab Gang', Anubhav Sinha and his director Soumik Sen are conscious about the fact that they won't allow any unnecessary intrusions with 'Gulab Gang'.
"Audience will watch the movie regardless of it being make or female drive. They have given their nod of approval to 'Kahaani' and before that 'No One Killed Jessica' despite no male lead in them. Similarly 'Vicky Donor' has now worked despite it not being set as a love story with a quintessential female lead. Things are changing and 'Gulab Gang' would stand the test of times", the expert adds.
We hope so as well.
