One of most special, significant films of my career: Mukerji
Mukerji had earlier stated that this will be one of the most special and significant films of her career. "I started my career with Raja Ki Aayegi Baraat, which was a woman-centric film, and coincidentally in my 25th year, I'm announcing a film that is also centered around a woman's resolve to fight against all odds and take on a country," she had said.
It is reportedly based on a 10-year-old real life incident
