Vidya Balan-starrer ‘Begum Jaan’ was on the air a few days ago and the actress left the audience puzzled with her threatening look. Now, the makers have revealed the second poster and it is equally furious this time, it features not just the ‘Kahaani’ actress but the whole female cast. A confident Vidya will go together with by co-actors Gauahar Khan and Pallavi Sharda in the poster that allow the powerful caption, “When Freedom Fought Independence” and a caption that reads, “Lived as whores (prostitute).Fight as queens”
She plays the madam of a whorehouse and can be seen smoking an antic hookah, sleeping on a bed and being served by co-star Gauahar Khan. Vidya seems scruffy and de-glamorous avatar. Fans can be expecting a dominant performance from the actress, yet again. ‘Begum Jaan’ is the remake of National Award-winning filmmaker Srijit Mukherji’s Bengali film, ‘Rajkahini’.
The film look into into the lives of 11 women living in a whorehouse that finds itself alienated by the newly-chalked LOC, with half of the house in India and the other half in Pakistan post-partition. 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 uses of bad language words. The film that is scheduled to hit screens on March 17, 2017, also stars Pallavi Sharda , Priyanka Sethia, Gauahar Khan , Flora Saini , Ridhima Tiwari, Ravija Chauhan and Poonam Rajput.The film also features Naseeruddin Shah and Gauahar Khan in key roles and is ready to release on April 14, 2017
