No one could see this coming, but the latest developments have surprised one and all. QUEEN which all this while was aiming for a February release, has been pushed to first week of March. This has brought the film in straight clash with GULAAB GANG. What makes the clash prominent is the fact that it brings Madhuri Dixit and Kangna Ranaut in the ring, hence making for an unlikely competition in the offering.

While the face-off between Madhuri and Juhi is what’s making GULAAB GANG piping hot, the arrival of QUEEN on 7th March could well be an add-on, considering the fact that both films are women-centric features.
Now all eyes would be on how the free-spirited Kangana stands up to the veteran actress. After all, reports of the Soumik Sen- directed GULAAB GANG are super strong and it is being believed that Madhuri has come up with a terrific performance that would make many stand up and notice.

As a matter of fact, QUEEN was slated for a 28th February arrival all this while before opting for a week later, even though its promotional material was out much in advance. No wonder, the sudden movement of QUEEN has been surprising to say the least.
To make things somewhat better though, the makers (Fox Star Studios and Eyedentity Motion Pictures) of the Manoj Bajpai-Jimmy Shergill starrer TRAFFIC [remake of the namesake Malayalam hit] are re-evaluating the release date. Thatat least makes it a cleaner slate for the arrival of GULAAB GANG and QUEEN.
