New Delhi: Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla-starrer film ‘Gulaab Gang' will hit theatres tomorrow across the country as secheduled as the Delhi High Court today lifted the stay granted on its release by a single judge bench on the ground that the movie depicts an activist and her ‘Gulabi Gang' in poor light.

“The film can only be shown after giving a clear disclaimer that it has nothing to do with the life of Sampat Pal (respondent) and her organisation Gulabi Gang,” a division bench of acting Chief Justice B D Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul said.

The film is scheduled for nationwide relase tomorrow and it had landed in trouble after a single judge bench yesterday stayed its release by nearly nine weeks after taking note of defamation law suit filed by Sampat Pal, a Uttar Pradesh-based activist.

Pal, who runs ‘Gulabi Gang comprising women vigilantes wearing pink sarees, said she and her members help harassed women and girls by resorting to peaceful means and the prommos of the film show that the lead actor, playing her character, was shown as an anti-social element, wielding swords and sickles, contrary to her real life persona.
