After her stunning performance as always with her stellar performance in the sequels of Kahaani and Kahaani 2, Vidya Balan is once again seen with her very enthralling performance in the film .   Begum Jaan is set during the era of India-Pakistan partition of India in 1947 in a brothel comprising of eleven women, caught in political motive and the film goes on to show how these brave women fight for their shelter at the cost of endangering their lives. 


 The story is an adaptation of the 2015 Bengali film RajKahini. Vidya Balan plays the role of a brothel’s Madam. Gauhar Khan has also a prominent role in this film.


The film has been shot across the country in Delhi, Jharkhand and Punjab.


The film went into some troubled times with CBFC(Central Board of Film Certification) as the film is based on the backdrop of Brothels and the language used in the film was an issue which the film makers have been asked to be replaced.   Begum Jaan is expected to release sometime in March 2017.
