Bollywood actor Naseeruddin Shah will be seen in a steamy scene with "Kaanchi" actress Mishti Chakraborty in "Begum Jaan." The actress will be seen in a key role in the Sreejit Mukherjee directorial, which also stars "Te3n" actress Vidya Balan.
According to a Filmfare report, Mishti will take shelter in a brothel and will perform an intimate scene with Naseeruddin, who will reportedly do a special appearance in the film. Vidya will play the role of a brothel's madam in this Hindi remake of the Bengali film "Rajkahini."
Produced by Mahesh Bhatt, the film is set to go on floors by June 19 and will be shot in the scorching heat of Jharkhand for a month. "I have never been to Jharkhand in my life. I am told that the temperature will be around 45 degrees even on the days it has rained. Imagine the scorching heat that lies ahead for me," Vidya had informed SpotboyE.
Set in the backdrop of the Partition, "Begum Jaan" is not the only movie in which Vidya will share screen space with Naseeruddin. They had earlier done films like "The Dirty Picture" and "Ishqiya." "I am looking forward to working with Naseer saab. Naseer and me have worked in completely two different worlds in the 'The Dirty Picture' and 'Ishqiya,' and this again is a diametrically opposite world. It's always exciting and nerve-wracking to work with him," Vidya told IANS.
On the other hand, Mishti, who was last seen in Subhash Ghai's film "Kaanchi: The Unbreakable," is set to play an important character in "Begum Jaan." She will also appear in the upcoming sex comedy, "Great Grand Masti," which will star Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi, Aftab Shivdasani and Urvashi Rautela.
