The founder of the grassroots women’s organization Gulabi Gang won a petition earlier this week at the Delhi high court to temporarily block the release of the Hindi movie Gulaab Gang.
Pal had moved the High Court seeking a stay order on the film, alleging that the filmmakers did not take her permission and the movie shows her in a bad light. Pal has accused Sen of basing Gulaab Gang on her life.
The Film fraternity also spoke on this matter, and tweeted.
“In India, we have seen filmmakers being repeatedly targeted by groups and individuals for personal gains. It’s déjà vu. It’s a tragedy that while the censors are becoming liberal, the civil society is making film industry a soft target,” says filmmaker Mahesh Bhatt.
“Bollywood is a soft target!” tweeted music director Vishal Dadlani.
