Talking about Begum Jaan, Vidya said in earlier interviews, “My onscreen character raises a very important question — why are a woman’s actions controlled by her father, brother, husband or son? So she decides not to allow anyone to take away her space, be it in terms of property or her physical self. The script and the story are really very different and attractive. We are just finishing dubbing and post-production work.”
The film is directed by National Award-winning director Srijit Mukherji. The film marks his Bollywood debut.
"Begum Jaan" will hit the cinemas on April 14.
