Rituparna played the lead role, madam of a brothel in the film. Vidya Balan played the same character in film Begum Jaan, the Hindi version of  Rajkahini. Rituparna was invited by producer Mahesh Bhatt and Vidya Balan.

Rituparna was overwhelmed bu the gesture of Vidya Balan. Ritu said "I was touched when Vidya told me, 'You are my original Begum Jaan.' Vidya too was extremely courteous — she told me that my feedback matters. Post the screening, she came and asked me whether her acting was anywhere to close to what I'd done. I told her it was phenomenal! I also met Chunky (Pandey), one of my old co-stars with whom I have delivered many hit films in Bangladesh. We watched the film together. He's done a stupendous job in the movie as did Jisshhu in Rajkahini."

Rituparna further said "One of the most touching moments was when I saw Srijit's (Mukherji) mother. It was a huge moment for her— after all, her son was making his directorial debut in Bollywood. Vidya and Gauahar are amazing in the film. Then again, we were too. I put my heart and soul in the film as did everyone else. It was a great moment for me when Vidya told me that it was big that for her to be attempting something I've done. It's heartening that Vidya, a great actress herself, feels like that about me."
