The trailer of Vidya Balan’s next – Sherni is released today. After collaborating on various successful ventures over the years, T-Series and Abundantia Entertainment have brought out yet another unconventional story. The teaser was released on 31 May.
Directed by Amit Masurkar of Newton fame, the film will premiere on Amazon Prime Video. With Vidya Balan in the lead, Sherni is a fictional story that takes us through the journey of a forest officer who strives for balance in a world of man-animal conflict.
“Ever since I first heard the story of Sherni, I found the world fascinating and so far removed from my own. Also, the character I play, Vidya is a woman of few words but many dimensions. The film deals with a sensitive topic that touches upon respect, mutual understanding, and co-existence, not just between man-animal, but between humans as well. It gives me immense joy to bring this unique character and story to the global audience through Amazon Prime Video and hope to engage them in unexpected ways,” said Vidya Balan.
Produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Vikram Malhotra and Amit Masukar, the film boasts of a powerful ensemble cast that includes Sharat Saxena, Mukul Chadda, Vijay Raaz, Ila Arun, Brijendra Kala and Neeraj Kabi. Sherni will exclusively release on 18 June 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
After Shakuntala Devi, Sherni is the next release of Vidya Balan and both the movies are being released exclusively on OTT. Vidya Balan has reportedly signed a third film with Vikram Malhotra for a quirky comedy, drama, directed by Suresh Triveni which is expected to begin shooting in July.
