It is being produced by the fearless Mahesh Bhatt and the plot revolves around the effects of partition on the brothel houses and the lives of prostitutes in the brothel including that of the brothel head i.e. Begum Jaan. Rituparno Sengupta had essayed the role of Begum Jaan in the Bengali film which now will be helmed by The Balan. The movie holds special importance for Bengal since Punjab and Bengal states experienced partition in a heart breaking manner. A total of 11 sex workers will be shown working under Begun Jaan and it features an entirely new cast though the original movie had a lot of reputed Bengali cinema actors playing important roles. In fact none of the actors are said to be repeated in the Hindi remake and the cast apart from Vidya will be soon revealed.
