In SonyLIVs newwebseriesMaharani,HumaQureshiplays a role inspired byLaluYadavs wifeRabriDevi Theact has won her more fangs than fans.A lot of Bihars junta feels this whitewashed versionRabriDevi is a sham
Says Roshan Singh a leading film exhibitor of Bihar, Which Rabri Devi is this? When did she become this Jhansi Ka Rani and Indira Gandhi combined? I feel the series is sponsored by Lalujis well-wishers and friends.
Says Patna-based steel entrepreneur Sudhir Kumar, They did the right thing by changing the names of Lalu Yadav and Rabri Devi .This is not Rabri Devis story. If it is their own imagination then why was the cast giving interviews about the serial being based in Lalu and Rabri Devi? You cant have it both ways. Headline bhi aur fiction bhi.
Humas film have so far not been much appreciated in Bihar. That has changed now.Her character in Maharani has made her a household name in the State.
Rekha Vinod a school teacher in Patna says Humas character is an ideal blend of resolute and flexible. Of course theyve taken huge liberties with political facts. But then what was Sanjay Leela Bhansalis Padmaavat? Or Mughal-eAzam? What I like about Huma Qureshis character is that she very reluctantly agrees to become the Chief Minister of Bihar . But she refuses to be a rubberstamp. She has a mind of her own. Thats amazing.
Says Huma Qureshi, It’s not often that you get to portray a character that lets you explore so many layers as a performer. Rani Bharti has been a delight to play. She starts off as someone whom we all know and relate to but what she goes onto become is someone few of us can aspire for.
