Vidya Balan has been getting praises for her depiction of a madam of a house of ill-repute in the ‘Begum Jaan’ trailer that was release early this month. The film that is a Hindi adaptation of National Award-winning film maker Srijit Mukherji’s Bengali film, ‘Rajkahini’, is set in the setting of the India-Pakistan partition. Reports charge that the underlining plot – the Partition – is the motivation behind why this film won’t see the light of day in Pakistan.
Producer Mahesh Bhatt has even supposedly kept in touch with the Pakistan government to permit the release of the film. In any case, he presently can’t seem to get their answer. Refering to that Pak authorities frequently bar movies that depict the nation in terrible light, reports claim that ‘Begum Jaan’ may suffer an indistinguishable destiny from movies like ‘Raees’, ‘Jolly LLB’, ‘Neerja’, to give some examples.
The current political circumstance between the two countries is likewise refered to as an explanation behind the film not getting its April 14 release in the country.
