Naseeruddin Shah to make a special appearance in ‘Begum Jaan’
This movie is helmed by Mahesh and Mukesh Bhatt. Mukesh Bhatt states, “Naseer will make a special appearance but his character is pivotal to the plot. He has worked with us in ‘Naajayaz’ (1995) and ‘Sir’ (1993) in the past. We’ve always shared a special bond with him but we didn’t come across a story worthy enough to approach him before for an actor of his calibre.”
‘Begum Jaan’, is the Hindi remake of critically-acclaimed Bengali Partition tale, ‘Rajkahini’ is coming up and will go on floors in June.
This movie also see Anu Malik and Asha Bhosle back together after ‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’.
The movie sees Vidya depicting the role of a high-spirited strong woman. The story has been set up in the aftermath of Bengal partition around 1947 and moves around the life of 11 women living in a brothel that is based on the line of control thus half of it lies in India and the other half in Pakistan.
