A period(ish) film? Starring La Dixit in a major role? A role likely to have ample dance interludes featuring La Dixit? I am intrigued! Mads will be essaying the role of Begum Para, a courtesan opposite Naseeruddin Shah's Khalujaan. Word has it that Pt. Birju Maharaj has choreographed a mujra/kathak item for La Dixit! The film is scheduled for worldwide release in January. Here's a first look at Begum Para.
