The trailer of ‘Begum Jaan’ just dropped online and the actress is bound to leave you awestruck with her solid performance.
‘Begum Jaan’ is a story of survival set against the backdrop of the Partition. The trailer starts with a thought-provoking monologue in the deep baritone of Amitabh Bachchan. Cut to Vidya’s powerful entry as Begum Jaan, a brothel owner who has built a world for herself and the other women in her brothel. However, their existence is threatened when the house in which they reside has to be torn down as a result of the Partition. With the newly-chalked LOC, half of the house is in India and the other half in Pakistan post-Partition. Begum Jaan and the other women vow not to give up their house without a fight.
‘Begum Jaan’ shows the grit and gumption of a group of sex workers who have been pushed to the wall. ‘Begum Jaan’ also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Ila Arun, Chunky Pandey among others. While the other actresses too look promising, Vidya steals the show with her fiery act.
