New song from Srijit Mukherji's Begum Jaan called Azaadiyan depicts the hefty price India and Pakistan had to pay to get freedom from British rule. The song, sung beautifully by Sonu Nigam and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan shows how people got affected, lives got destroyed, generations got scarred due to the painful partition. The film narrates the story of a brothel run by Vidya Balan which comes right where the new border between India and Pakistan has to be drawn. The occupants are asked to empty the brothel in a month's time and how Begum Jaan and her girls fight for their rightful place is what the film is about. A remake of Bengali film Rajkahini, the film is scheduled to release on 14th April in theaters.
