Begum Jaan Trailer Story :-
‘Begum Jaan’ is a story of survival set against the backdrop of the Partition. The trailer starts with a thought-provoking monologue in the deep baritone of Amitabh Bachchan. Cut to Vidya’s powerful entry as Begum Jaan, a brothel owner who has built a world for herself and the other women in her brothel. However, their existence is threatened when the house in which they reside has to be torn down as a result of the Partition. With the newly-chalked LOC, half of the house is in India and the other half in Pakistan post-Partition. Begum Jaan and the other women vow not to give up their house without a fight. What follows is a series of events that is deftly handled by director Srijit Mukerji.
