Vidya Balan, who portrays the role of a brothel 'madam' in Begum Jaan said that a film's script prepares her to do it. "I spent a lot of time with Srijit Mukherji trying to understand Begum Jaan," said the actress
Vidya Balan's Begum Jaan director Srijit Mukherji has explained that the actress wasn't actually the 'first choice' for Rajkahini over Bengali star Rituparna Sengupta
Sushmita Sen said, "I have been saying this for quite a long time. When I will be back on big screen, the audiences should be happy"
"In Bollywood, directors have greater faith in actors. You can see an Alia Bhatt portraying a pock-marked rural woman in Udta Punjab which is a departure from her micro-flaunting image. In Bengali cinema, the directors are not willing to experiment with me," said Swastika Mukherjee
