Mumbai :  Bollywood actor Madhuri Dixit will be seen doing the role of a Godmother prototype in the film Gulab Gang, while hottie Bipasha Basu will be seen playing the role of a seductress in Rohit Roy's remake of Basu Chatterjee's 1982 film Shaukeen, says a Mumbai Mirror report.

The report said, Gulab Gang , conceptualized by Soumik Sen and Anubhav Sinha had been in the offing for a while now.

The story about a gang of women fighting social injustice in the heartland of India, will mark the directorial debut of Sen.

Inspired by real life,this film will be released on March 8, International Women's Day next year.

Says producer Anubhav Sinha : " Yes,we have signed Madhuri for the film.  She will play the protagonist Gulab.

"We want to start shooting by the end of the year.  After the release of RA.One, I was visiting Benaras to finalise the script fro my next film,  when Soumik came up with this idea. And I immediately gave it a go ahead."

Sen is now looking at actors like Mahie Gill and Shilpa Shukla to complete his gang of women in the film.

The film will be made under the banner Benaras Media Works.

On the Shaukeen remake front, director Rohit had already finalised Rishi Kapoor, Naseeruddin Shah and Boman Irani to play the aging Lotharios portrayed by Ashok Kumar, Utpal Dutt and AK Hangal in the original.  All three oldies will be seen trying to win the loyalties of Bipasha Basu.

Rohit however says that his film is not exactly a replica of the 1982 blockbuster.

"It has been thirty years since the release of Shaukeen. We had to change tweak the story accordingly.  The three sixty-year-old men in my film won't be lusting for a girl as it was in the original," revealed the filmmaker.

"My film is more like a Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara meets 1982 Shaukeen. These three men have always gone out for trips,once every five years. This is their last," says Rohit.
