Begum Jaan is an upcoming action-drama directed by Srijit Mukherji and produced by Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt. The film is scheduled for release on April 14, 2017.
Vidya Balan plays the lead role of a brothel’s madam, set in the backdrop of late Indian Independence period of 1947.
Vidya Balan has the ability to lose herself in her character. Whether it is Kahaani or Dirty Picture, you don’t see the actor, only the character. With her upcoming, Begum Jaan, Vidya appears to have achieved the feat once again. Vidya plays the owner of a brothel in Punjab. The film is set during the Partition of India and shows the tribulations of displaced women. Sharing the first poster from the film, Vidya tweeted, “Aa rahi hoon main! #BegumJaanFirstLook @visheshfilms @srijitspeaketh.”
