Vidya Balan and filmmaker Srijit Mukherji caught up with News18 and spoke about their new film Begum Jaan. The director stated that the film is not a remake but an adaptation of Bengali film Rajkahini. When asked if the Censor board had rasied any issue on the language that was used in the film, Srijit said, ‘They were very kind and demanded no cuts.” Vidya mentioned that the film would have zero impact if they had featured 11 men instead of 11 women. “There is no male substitute to Begum Jaan and her women,” said Vidya.
