The movie is a version of Mukherji’s Bengali movie Rajkahini, and stars Vidya in the lead, as a brothel’s madam in Punjab in the course of India’s partition in 1947.
Mukherji had been quoted as stating, “There’s something special about Vidya’s face, speech and body language. Honestly, if you believe in this kind of powerful roles, you are able to simply think of Vidya or Rani Mukerji. Vidya was my first choice. I cannot think any other actresses who cab pull off this particular character.”
