Delhi High Court stays release of 'Gulab Gang'
Delhi High Court has stayed the release of Madhuri Dixit-Juhi Chawla starer Bollywood film Gulab Gang till May 9. The orders came after activist Sampat Pal, on Wednesday moved to the court demanding stay on the release of the film, which is reportedly based on her life. Sampat Pal is from Gulaabi Gang, a group of pink saree clad women vigilantes from Uttar Pradesh.

The film starring Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla as leads, was all set to be released on March 7. Sampat Pal moved to high court seeking a restraining order on the release of Gulaab Gang saying the filmmakers did not take her permission before making the movie.

Sampat Pal was very upset with Madhuri Dixit and says that Madhuri's character is based on her, she even said, "Woh Madhuri Dixit hain. Woh chori chori bana liya. Humse permission bhi nahi liya." (She is Madhuri Dixit, and has made a film on the sly. They haven't taken permission from me). If they release the film, "hum unpe mukdma kardenge" (we will sue them), as reported by

Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva stayed the release of film, saying, ?If it is allowed to be released it will cause irreversible damages to the reputation of Sampat Pal. And the laws of reputation cannot be compensated by monetary terms.?

Sampat also sought financial compensation saying that certain scenes in the movie will effect her reputation. Sampat has also been questioned by the court, for the delay in filing the plea. The movie slated for release on Friday is directed by d?butante Soumik Sen and produced by Anubhav Sinha.
