Vidya Balan to essay the role of Rani Lakshmibai Razia Sultana and Mirabai in Begum Jaan

We had reported that Vidya Balan was starring in a female-centric film titled Begum Jaan where she along with other female characters live in a brothel who become the victim of partition between India and Pakistan.

We have now learned that Vidya Balan will essay three different roles in Begum Jaan. According to the reports, she will be playing iconic characters of Rani Lakshmibai, Razia Sultana and Mirabai which is an important sequence in the film. It is very important to the storyline and her character. It is also reported that designer Ricky Roy has spent weeks to do research on that period to design Vidya's costumes.

Begum Jaan is a remake of Srijit Mukherjee's Bangla hit Rajkahini which was critically acclaimed. Produced by Mahesh Bhatt and Mukesh Bhatt, the remake is set in Punjab. The cast includes Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Flora Saini, Ila Arun, Mishti, Ridhima Tiwari among others and is scheduled for early 2017 release.

Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan to star in Yash Raj Films next

A while back reports stated that the Mohenjo Daro star Hrithik Roshan would be seen in Yash Raj Films' next venture Thug that will be directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya. However, now we hear that after citing date issues, Hrithik Roshan has backed out of the project and will be replaced by none other than the perfectionist Aamir Khan.

Though the makers of the film have refrained from revealing details of the film, reports suggest that Aamir will commence work on Thug once he has completed shooting for Dangal. But what caught our attention was the fact that the film Thug will in fact feature a casting coupe of sorts with Aamir Khan sharing screen space with veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan.

While an official confirmation is awaited, Thug which is said to be an action adventure film will be an adaptation of the best-selling novel, Confession of Thug, a period drama set against the rampant thug culture in the pre-independence era. The film will also capture the relationship between a father and a son.

Priyanka Chopra plans to do one film a year between Hollywood and Bollywood

Priyanka Chopra, who was last seen in Prakash Jha's Jai Gangaajal, is planning to balance her careers both in Bollywood and Hollywood. Recently, Priyanka Chopra had returned to India for 40 days to complete her endorsements and read some scripts before flying back to New York to begin shooting for her TV series Quantico.

While Priyanka Chopra is trying to be a global star, she has no plans on quitting Hindi film industry. When she was in India, she met with some of the filmmakers including Sanjay Leela Bhansali, Farhan and Zoya Akhtar, Karan Johar among others to go through some scripts but didn't sign any film. In an interview with a daily, Priyanka revealed that not just Bollywood but she has declined more than six Hollywood films. Having said that, she added that her plan is to pick the best scripts and do one film from both Hollywood and Bollywood. Adding to that, Priyanka Chopra said she has always been a 70mm girl who could never give up on Hindi films.

Talking about the tight schedule between movies, TV show, and several appearances, Priyanka Chopra says she has always loved variety. Being a producer, actress, and an artist, she enjoys doing a little drama, a little humour and a little action. Juggling between several projects in Bollywood and Hollywood, Priyanka Chopra has now reduced to acting in one film at a time as she is creatively frustrated.

As of now Priyanka Chopra is only doing her TV show Quantico, which is being filmed in New York, as the second season premieres on September 25.
