‘Begum Jaan’: Vidya looks convincing as madam of brothel; Gauhar goes deglam in first look
Actress Vidya Balan united with the National Award winning Bengali director Srijit Mukherji for latter’s Bollywood debut ‘Begum Jaan’. The first look of the film is out and needless to say, it promises strong performances from the entire cast.
The picture from the sets that is being surfaced on the internet gave the glimpse of Vidya puffing hookah, whereas actress and dancer Gauhar Khan was also seen in a deglam avatar. Both the ladies are appearing together for the first time.
Vidya’s films have proved that she is a wonderful actress but in the picture it is difficult not to notice Gauhar.
The film is the Hindi remake of Bengali film ‘Rajkahini’ directed by the same director. The movie is based on the Indo-Pak partition era and tells the story of a woman in brothel. It is slated to release on March 17.
It reports are to be believed then the censor board has passed the movie without any cut with an A-certificate.
Vidya Balan’s last on screen venture was ‘Kahaani 2’. The critics applauded her work; however the film didn’t do well at the box office. Gauhar Khan on the other hand has done some terrific dance numbers and now is trying something different with this flick.
