Chunky Pandey has revealed his look for the upcoming Hindi adaptation of the heart-wrenching Bengali drama, Rajkahini. The adaptation has been titled ‘Begum Jaan’ and is being directed by Srijit Mukherjee.
The film revolves around the story of 11 women in a brothel household, who refuse to part ways with their shelter as it becomes victim of a disastrous partition between India and Pakistan and stars Vidya Balan as the madame of the brothel, and Gauhar Khan, Flora Saini, Poonam Rajput, Priyanka Setia, Pallavi Sharda, Ila Arun and Mishti playing the inhabitants of the house.
Pandey will be seen in an out-and-out negative character called Kabir, a first in his career.
Needless to say, we’re intrigued.
