Vidya Balan impressed everyone with her acting prowess right from her debut film, Parineeta. Since then, the actress has come a long way and is considered to be one of the most talented and versatile actresses today.
Her performances in films like Kahaani, The Dirty Picture and Bhool Bhulaiya have been remarkable, though in her acting career of over a decade, the actress is yet to have a 100 crore movie. Will she enter the elite club of 100 crore with Begum Jaan?
Here is the list of Vidya Balan’s Top 10 Highest Grossers:
|The Dirty Picture||2011||85.00|
|Lage Raho Munnabhai||2006||71.00|
|Hamari Adhuri Kahaani||2015||37.57|
|Shaadi Ke Side Effects||2014||37.50|
The trailer of Bagum Jaan has received great response from the cinegoers. Since there was no big release on the last Friday and Begum Jaan has decent amount of buzz, the film is expected to open on a fair note.
The film will have to beat the collections of Paa (31.20 crores) to enter in Vidya’s top 10 list.
Apart from Vidya Balan, Begum Jaan has one of the biggest and most powerful ensemble cast, with Ila Arun, Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Rajit Kapoor, Ashish Vidyarthi, Chunky Pandey, Pitobash, Poonam Rajput, Ridheema Tiwari, Flora Saini, Priyanka Setia, Mishti Chakraborty, Sumit Nijhawan, Rajesh Sharma, Vivek Mushran in pivotal roles and Naseeruddin Shah making a guest appearance.
Begum Jaan is helmed by National Award winner Srijit Mukherji. The Bengali director is making his directorial debut in Bollywood with this film. Srijit Mukherjee’s directorial is a Hindi adaptation of Bengali film Rajkahini, which saw Rituparna Sengupta in the lead role.
Produced by Mukesh Bhatt, Vishesh Bhatt and Play Entertainment, the film is scheduled to release on this Friday.
Post the release of Begum Jaan, Vidya Balan will start the shooting of Tumhari Sulu.
Tumhari Sulu revolves around the character of Sulu (Sulochana), a simple, happy-go-lucky housewife who stumbles upon a job of a night RJ (radio jockey). The music will play a crucial element in the film.
