Trust Vidya Balan to stun us everytime with a new avatar. The actress has carved her own niche over the years and has managed to bowl us with some award-winning performances. Be it her bold character in The Dirty Picture or her stunning act in Kahaani. Her amazing act as Monjulika in Bhool Bhulaiyya or her act in Ishqiya, Vidya has done it all. This time, the powerhouse performer has impressed us yet again in her Begum Jaan’s avatar on the first poster of her upcoming film.
Known for getting under the skin of the character she plays, Vidya looks deadly as Begum Jaan in the new poster revealed by the makers. Dressed in a maroon ghagra, a long embroidered blouse with a deep-neck, Vidya looks intriguing as the madam of the brothel. The poster’s tag line states “My Body, My House, My Country, My Rules” and Balan’s menacing looks reinstates that.
Begum Jaan is a story of survivors who defy nations to save their homes, riding against the tide amidst the changing political scenario during Partition. ‘When Freedom fought Independence’ is the tagline of the film and is directed by national award-winning director Srijit Mukherji.
The movie also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Ila Arun, Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Rajit Kapoor, Ashish Vidyarthi, Vivek Mushran, Chunky Pandey, Poonam Singh Rajput, Ridheema Tiwari, Flora Saini, Priyanka Setia, Mishti Chakraborty, Sumit Nijhawan, Pitobash and Rajesh Sharma in pivotal roles.
Produced by Mukesh Bhatt and Vishesh Bhatt, Begum Jaan releases on April 14, 2017.
We are absolutely in love with this fierce Vidya Balan in the poster. How about you?!
