Begum Jaan poster: Vidya Balan looks intriguing as madam of a brothel

The first poster of Vidya Balan's next film Begum Jaan is out.

After receiving a lukewarm response for Kahaani 2 at the box office, Vidya Balan is ready to bounce back with her next film Begum Jaan. Known to portray varied roles, Vidya has yet again taken up the challenge of playing a madam of a brothel in Begum Jaan.

And the first poster of the film has only up the curiosity level. Clad in a maroon ghagra-choli with a hookah in one hand, Vidya looks menacing as Begum Jaan. And the caption, "My body, my house. My country, my rules" sets the tone of the film.
