Whose Sari Now?

A gang of pink sari-wearing vigilantes who thrash wife-beating husbands are taking on Bollywood in a row over a movie over their exploits in northern India.

The Gulabi Gang - or Pink Gang - dispense instant justice with hefty poles to cruel husbands, corrupt politicians and crooked police chiefs in Uttar Pradesh state.

Now they've threatened to thrash movie producers making a film about the gang's creator Sampat Pal too unless they like the final cut.

Spokeswoman Jaiprakash Shivhare said: "We run a group that helps women in distress. But we are sceptical as to how all of this will be shown in a film."

"We also think it would be appropriate it if they can give us some compensation. We can help women with that money." she added.

Director Anubhav Sinha, said: "It’s too early for anyone to talk about this film."

    You really make it seem so easy together with your presentation however I in finding this matter to be really something which I believe I'd never understand. It kind of feels too complex and extremely extensive for me. I am having a look ahead in your subsequent put up, I'll attempt to get the cling of it!
