Vidya Balan will begin shooting for her film ‘Begum Jaan’ on June 11 in Jharkhand and has begun get ready for her role. The film happens to be a spin-off of chief Srijit Mukherji’s Bengali motion picture, ‘Rajkahini’.
We hear that the Bollywood actors has begun perusing Urvashi Butalia’s book ‘The Other Side Of Silence’, which depends on the partition of India, as a part of the planning. A source told HT, “The book contains more than 70 interviews with those who witnessed the Partition first-hand. The survivors have particularly spoken about the crimes committed against women during that time. Since the film is set in that period, Vidya is finding the book extremely insightful. It is helping her understand the era better.”
