Nagpuri is one of the largely used local dialects in the Chhotanagpur region of Jharkhand. Today, the Nagpuri film industry, also known as Jhollywood, is struggling for a national identity and has failed to compete with other regional film industries in the south and neighbouring West Bengal. Rituparna, looking forward to meeting her reel "namesake", says, "I remember meeting Vidya when director Srijit (Mukherji) was shooting with her in Delhi". The cast was very happy with Jharkhand's hospitality.

"Mahesh Bhatt met Chief Minister Raghubar along with Vidya Balan". He said majority of the film's shooting has taken place in the state and that's why the government has chose to make the film tax-free.

She said the cooperation of the people ensured that the film was shot in an better environment.

"Our set was in the open, and the state government provided foolproof security to ensure there were no untoward incidents", Mukherjee said.

"Delighted to announce that "Begum Jaan" has been declared tax free in Jharkhand and has also been given a subsidy of 2 cr under the Government Policy of Promotion of Jharkhand as a Film Destination", wrote Mukherji.

The state has also identified a 200-acre plot for its proposed film city in Patratu, around 45 km from capital Ranchi.
