The makers of Hindi movie "Gulaab Gang" Thursday moved the Delhi High Court against suspension of the release of the movie, reportedly based on the life of activist Sampat Pal, who formed Gulabi Gang, a group of pink sari clad women vigilantes in Uttar Pradesh.

The filmmakers of "Gulaab Gang", set for release Friday, approached the division bench of Acting Chief Justice B.D. Ahmed and Justice Siddharth Mridul, who agreed to hear the plea later in the day.

The high court Wednesday blocked the release of the film, which stars Madhuri Dixit and Juhi Chawla, saying that if the release of "Gulaab Gang" is allowed, it will cause irreparable damage to the reputation of Sampat Pal.

"Reputation once lost is lost forever and cannot come back and can't be compensated in monetary terms," the court observed.

Directed by debutant Soumik Sen, the film has been produced by Anubhav Sinha.

Sampat Pal moved the high court seeking a restraining order on the release of "Gulaab Gang", saying the filmmakers did not take her permission before making the movie, which shows her in bad light.

She alleged that the actress playing her character was shown in a bad light in the promos of the film, which will thus affect her reputation.

She also contended that promos of the film depict her as an anti-social element contrary to her real life image.
