The makers of the film have therefore decided to change the release date. Now it will release in March rather than January 2017.
Srijit Mukherji’s upcoming film ‘Begum Jaan’ is an adaptation of the 2015 Bengali film ‘Rajkahini’. It is set in the pre-Independence era. The movie showcases the ‘Kahaani’ star playing the role of a madam of a brothel.

The film also stars Naseeruddin Shah, Rajat Kapoor, Gauhar Khan, Pallavi Sharda, Ila Arun, Ashish Vidyarthi & Chunkey Pandey.
