    Earlier it was reported that Vidya Balan would soon be seen in a Mahesh Bhatt film. Well now we hear that the film in question which is an adaptation of Srijit Mukherji's Bengali film, Rajkahini, will be titled Begum Jaan after the main protagonist, the madam of the brothel. Further we also hear that the central protagonist of the film that was played by Rituparna Sengupta in the original, will be essayed by none other than Vidya Balan.

    Set to roll in June, Begum Jaan follows the after effects of the Partition in Bengal in 1947, delving into the lives of 11 women living in a brothel that finds itself divided by the newly-chalked LOC, with half of the house now in India and the other half in Pakistan.

    Though more details of the film are unavailable, we hear that the makers will be casting eight other actresses for the film; however Vidya Balan will be ruling all the eight as the madam.
    This is going to be the greatest merger-saga of Bollywood in recent times. Producer-director and owner of Dharma Productions Karan Johar is all set to join hands with Aamir Khan, Ronnie Screwvala (former founder of UTV), leading Mumbai distributor Anil Thadani and Siddharth Roy Kapur of UTV-Disney Films to combat what is secretly being referred to as the "multiplex monopoly."

    A source very close to the development says, "The idea behind the conglomerate being formed by these five seasoned entrepreneurs is to combat the monopolistic stronghold of the big multiplexes that virtually lay down ground rules about the terms and conditions for the release of films. The merger will endeavour to break the multiplex monopoly, bring the smaller multiplex chains into the picture, construct new theatres, create a financially feasible alternate outlet chain to the big multiplex chains."

    The quintet has already worked out all the nitty-gritty of the partnership. A formal announcement will be made at "an appropriate time."
