The first still of Vidya Balan from her upcoming film ‘Begum Jaan’ is finally here. She is seen playing a madam of a brothel, totally de-glam, smoking a hookah sitting on a bed to the hilt.
The still also features her co-star Gauahar Khan who was last seen donning a similar role in Ishaqzaade. Against the backdrop of a red light area, both the women can be expected to give power packed performances.
'Begum Jaan' is the Hindi adaptation of National Award-winning filmmaker Srijit Mukherji's Bengali film 'Rajkahini', which was the story of the tryst of 11 displaced women in a brothel during the Partition of India.
The film has been awarded an ‘A’ certificate by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) and has been cleared without any cuts, apart from muting a few cuss words.
The film will hit the screens on March 17, 2017 and we can't wait for it already!
