Vidya Balan who plays the madam of a brothel in Begum Jaan, the Hindi adaptation of National Award-winning filmmaker Srijit Mukherji’s Bengali film, Rajkahini is thoroughly enjoying playing such a drastically different role.
The actress who enjoys getting under the skin of her character, is going all out to ensure her look is completely authentic and even suggested to the makers to use vintage jewellery from her personal collection.
Says a source, ” Vidya has a massive, impressive jewellery collection which she suggested the designer use. Vidya loves ethnic sarees and jewellery and has over 300 earrings and loads of rings,including some vintage costume jewellery . Since the film is based in the early 19th century it made complete sense to pick pieces from her personal collection”
