Filmmaker Srijit Mujherji’s upcoming movie Begum Jaan is ready to hit theatres on April 14, 2017. As the release date nears, Vidya Balan has become regular with her outings in the city.

The 38 year old actress has always made a fashion statement with her saris and is once again ready to entertain the audience in a powerful role. Vidya will be seen playing the role of the madam of a brothel during the post-Independence division between India and Pakistan. The flick will also see a number of actresses including Ila Arun, Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda and others who will be seen playing the roles of prostitutes under Begum Jaan played by Vidya.

The Parineeta actress in an interview with a leading daily confessed that she wanted to give an expression to her anger. Vidya said, “I wanted to unleash that part of me and all it took was a conversation with Bhatt saab on a flight. We were promoting Hamari Adhuri Kahani so, I told him that I wanted to give an expression to my anger, I have a lot of anger.”

Meanwhile, there are hardly any movies in Bollywood who escape cropping orders of the CBFC. Makers of Begum Jaan have also been asked to make 12 major cuts. To add to the trouble of the makers, the board has also asked to emit the Muslim reference in the flick. For now the audience can just wait to see what the actual movie looks like.
