Begum Vidya Balan and her Jaans at the trailer launch of Begum Jaan

Vidya Balan along with the entire cast of Begum Jaan has launched the much-anticipated trailer for the movie on Tuesday. While the first look of the flick has already won us over and needless to say has hit written over it, what was even more impressive was the camaraderie of the team as they hosted the launch.

Spotted here is Begum Vidya along with her Jaans Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Ila Arun and Flora Saini among others. Donning a black ethnic outfit with a white embroidery, the Kahaani 2 star looked gorgeous in a messy hairdo.

Gauahar, on the other hand, was pretty in white as she sat beside Vidya for a lovely pose.

The pic was shared by an enthused Pallavi as she captioned it as, “My Begum @vidya_balan & her Jaans at the trailer launch today. @srijitspeaketh – you really did assemble a league of extraordinary women.”

Helmed by Srijit Mukherji, the movie also stars Vivek Mushran, Poonam Singh Rajput, Ridheema Tiwari, Priyanka Setia, Mishti Chakraborty, Sumit Nijhawan, Pitobash, Naseeruddin Shah, Rajit Kapoor, Rajesh Sharma and Ashish Vidyarthi.

Co-produced by Mukesh Bhatt, Vishesh Bhatt and Play Entertainment, the flick chronicles the fate, struggle and reluctance of Begum Jaan to desert a brothel, her “home” as she calls it in the aftermath of partition.

Speaking about Vidya being his first and the apt choice for the role, Mukherji had told a popular newspaper, “There’s something about Vidya’s face, voice and body language. Frankly, if you think of such powerful roles, you can only think of Vidya or Rani Mukherji. Vidya was my first choice. I can’t think of other actors who can pull off this character.”
