National Award-winning director Srijit Mukherji‘s ‘Begum Jaan’ has been much appreciated by those industry folks who have already seen it. The film, which has Vidya Balan essaying the title role, is about a group of women who defy nations to save their home. Apart from great performances by the cast, the makers hope that the message conveyed by the Partition drama will strike a chord with the audience. The story is a reminder that no matter who we are and how extreme our hardships are, life is all about fighting back and rising from the ashes like a phoenix.  Srijit says, “”Begum Jaan’ is not just a character in flesh and blood. She is the symbol of power, courage and strength. I hope the film challenges and brings out the Begum Jaan in all of us.” The movie also features Ila Arun, Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Rajit Kapur, Ashish Vidyarthi, Chunky Panday, Vivek Mushran, Ridheema Tiwari, Flora Saini, Priyanka Setia, Raviza Chauhan, Mishti Chakraborty, Poonam Singh Rajput, Sumit Nijhawan, Pitobash Tripathi and Rajesh Sharma along with Naseeruddin Shah in a special appearance. Begum Jaan, produced by Mukesh Bhatt, Vishesh Bhatt and Play Entertainment, releases today.  The Times of  India : 15th. Apr,17
