Vidya Balan‘s upcoming Begum Jaan has released its first song titled Prem Mein Tohre and it is bound to tug at your heartstrings.
The song captures a variety of emotions and oscillates between lonely, sad, revelatory and celebratory moods. From celebrating each festival with zeal to embracing loneliness at the end of the day, the song gives us a first-hand view of the lives of Begum Jaan and the sex workers in her brothel.
Sung by the legendary Asha Bhosle and cmposed by Anu Malik.
The film is set against the backdrop of India’s Independence but unlike Rajkahini that was set in Bengal, ‘Begum Jaan’ is set in Punjab. The film also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Gauahar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Ila Arun, Chunky Pandey among others.
Directed by Srijit Mukherji, ‘Begum Jaan’ is slated to release on April 14.
