Vidya Balan is eager to show the Begum Jaan trailer to her family, but says will she will do so only on the day of its formal launch. "I want everyone to watch the trailer. I am dying to show it to my family but I have told them that I will only show it to them on the day of the trailer launch," Vidya said a few days ahead of the trailer's unveiling on March 14.

When you are working, you are racing against time, braving the weather, you don't realise what you have made," the National Award winner said when asked about her teaser clip.
