New Delhi: Bollywood actress Vidya Balan's upcoming film 'Begum Jaan', based on Rituparna Sengupta's 'Rajkahini', is expected to take the cinema lovers by storm with its breakthrough performances. But, ever imagined, what would happen if both the leading ladies shared the frame.
Something similar happened when the duo recently met and, oh boy, their charisma spilled everywhere. "When both the #BegumJaans meet...Cake ka partition toh banta hai!!" Vidya tweeted along with an interesting picture.
Bengali film industry's powerhouse performer, Rituparna Sengupta's hard-hitting performance as a madam of a brothel resonated well with critics and audiences alike in 'Rajkahini'. It released in October 2015, made it to 19 film festivals and was a commercial hit.
