Official trailer out: Vidya Balan once again shines in the title role as "Begum Jaan"
Srijit Mukherji is all set with his debut Bollywood venture "Begum Jaan" which is scheduled for release on 14th April this year. Srijit, who made "Rajkahini" in 2015, this time, is making the film's Hindi version.

"Begum Jaan" is a multi-starrer with Vidya Balan, Naseeruddin Shah, Rajit Kapoor, Ashish Vidyarthi, Ila Arun, Gauhar Khan, Chunky Pandey and Pallavi Sharda in pivotal roles. The trailer released on March 14 and has been trending on social media.

The film produced by Vishesh Films is a remake of the 2015 Bengali film Rajkahani, which was based on the story of the inmates of a `whore house' who find themselves caught up amid the turmoil and violence that was witnessed during the partition of India.

While Vidya Balan has been chosen to play the main protagonist in the Hindi version of the film, it was Bengali actress Rituparna Sengupta who had essayed the original title role in `Rajkahini'. So watch the trailer to find out who has done a better job, Rituparna or Vidya! The title of the trailer says: "Lived as whores, fought as queens! Presenting the official trailer of Begum Jaan!"
