Lifeless posters of Aishwarya Rai, Madhuri Dixit, Amisha Patel and Mahima Chaudhary are plastered on the walls. They smile back at you from the cramped room that has never been graced by the sun’s rays. Turn away from the walls and you’ll find the living posters of Sushma, Nighat, Mamta, Roopa, Phalak and Fatima – roaming about idly or simply busy with daily chores. Welcome to life in GB Road, New Delhi’s notorious red light district.
