Ahead of their release, actor Pallavi Sharda along with actress Vidya Balan were seen promoting their upcoming film ‘Begum Jaan’ in Kolkata. What was endearing to see was that the two were dressed in similar sarees. When asked, it was found that the sarees had been gifted to them by none other than their director Srijit Mukherji.
'Begum Jaan' has them playing central characters in the period drama film.
Director Srijit Mukherji who has also directed the original Bengali film ‘Rajkahini’ of which Begum Jaan is a remake was also present at the promotional event in the city along with Mahesh Bhatt, the producer of the film.
Before the promotions started, the ‘Begum Jaan’ director had gifted a saree each to the leading ladies of his film. Actors Pallavi Sharda and Vidya Balan were pleased by this warm gesture and decided to wear them for the promotions. What’s even more fascinating is that both the actresses had similar looking sarees and looked stunning in red. They were accompanied by the director & producer of the film.
“Begum Jaan”, directed by Srijit Mukherji, and produced by Vishesh Films & Play Entertainment releases on April 14th, 2017.
