Me & the Gulaabi Gang: Nishtha Jain on making the documentary

Special Report by Bhavna Aggarwal

Men have been an important piece of the success of Gulabi Gang shares Nishtha Jain, the award winning documentary film maker. In this special conversation with SheThePeople.TV, Jain reflects on the way the film was made, how the central characters – the women of the region – continue to face challenges in a patriarchal society like ours.

Gulabi Gang deals with gender imbalances of our country and puts the spotlight on the rights of poor and Dalits and against corruption. It also presents the dichotomies of a new wave of women in Bundelkhand trying to break tradition and stand for themselves. A task that just not easy given the deeprooted mindsets of the people.
