After signing Madhuri Dixit for his movie ‘Gulab Gang’, filmmaker Anubhav Singh, who is foraying into production with this movie, is looking for the perfect actress to play antagonist in the film.
If the sources are to believed then Anubhav and director Soumik Sen are looking at top actresses like Vidya Balan, Rani Mukerji and Tabu to play villain in the movie.
But Anubhav Singh refused to confirm or deny the reports.
“I can’t divulge any names right now. The actor has to match Madhuri’s caliber and give her good opposition in the film. Playing the negative role of a chief minister with a strong personality will be tough,” he said.
The movie is a story about education of a girl child and a gang of women fighting injustice served against them. Madhuri Dixit will play the leader of this gang.
“Soumik has woven a Bollywood masala potboiler into a subject that has lots of action and violence. Being a trained musician, Soumik will ensure we have good music. We are looking at eight songs but they won’t be Madhuri’s signature ‘dhak dhak’ kind of numbers,” he adds. “We are yet to finalize the location and are thinking of few places. I would love to shoot in Uttar Pradesh as I am from that state. But Uttranchal is the next best option,” he said.
The producer hopes to finalize the antagonist of the movie in a month. The movie will go on floors in October.
Meanwhile the director is also working on the script for his next directorial venture.
The director, who made a huge budget movie ‘Ra.One’ recently, isn’t sure if his next movie will also be done on a large scale.
“Budgets don’t make a big film, box office success does. ‘Kahaani’ is the biggest example before us. But Shah Rukh has spoilt me, so it will be a big budget film,” he concluded.
