Gauhar Khan Bagged ‘Begum Jaan’ at Vidya Balan’s Behest
(bollywood masala) After her film ‘Fever’, which is slated to release soon, Gauahar Khan is now looking forward to her next project ‘Begum Jaan’. She recently wrapped up the shoot of the film. Reportedly, it was Vidya Balan who got Gauahar on board. While talking to a daily, Gauahar said, “When I told Vidya that I loved her work, to my surprise, she in turn told me that she loved me and my work, too.
Hearing her say she is my fan was a huge deal. I was shivering when I heard that. Perhaps, it was because I was relatively new at that time. She told me that we have to work together some day. I too wished and hoped for the same as I loved her and her work so much. I am the biggest Vidya Balan fan.”
Keeping her word, Vidya sent her a message saying that she would want to play a role in her next film ‘Begum Jaan’, the Hindi remake of director Srijit Mukherji’s Bengali movie ‘Rajkahini’. She says, “I wished that somehow I get a call for a role in the film and the next thing I know is I get a message from Vidya, saying she wants me to do a part in the film. I was jumping with joy, and couldn’t believe that it was happening.”
