  • wow sexy poster look like adult
    movie just like Entertainment
    entertainment ovre ma ho entertainment

  • ‘RAJKAHINI’ was supremely touchy Movie and It won hearts & box office too in Bengal….There was a strong substance & raw brutality in the movie with top notch performences!!Hope Srijit will extract best in Hindi too!! Vidya has immense opportunity to give an award winning performance for sure!! same applicable for some other character too!!All The Best to All 👍👍

  • this film is a remake of a bengali film “rajkahini”….that film was also directed by srijit mukherjee….he is one of the most sorted director in bengali industry…….the story is also great…..

  • Most people think of vidya balan as auntyji / behenji but she is truly a sensual beauty in the industry ; maybe the last one left.

  • She has own space and this is great she is not doing what all actresses are doing! amazing strength!!!

  • Does Vidya Balan have fans?!!! Never heard that ppl liked her.

    Wondering why doesn’t she care about her look? she gained weight over the years and it makes her look bad on the screen.

  • Vidya is one of the best actresses in Bollywood…Ishqiya,Kahaani,No one killed Jessica,bhool bhulaiya,paa,the dirty picture n the list goes on..Srijit had earlier said that vidya was always her first choice to play Begum Jaan which I feel was harsh as Rituparna gave an award(National) winning performance..though its true that if any actress who can even match Rituparna’s performance its Vidya..watched Rajkahini twice in theatres.on both occasions it received standing ovation..so just can’t wait for Begum Jaan
