In just four days, Vidya Balan’s Sherni will drop on Amazon Prime Video, and the excitement is palpable. But, ahead of the release of Sherni, the makers on Tuesday, June 15, unveiled a new track, Main Sherni, to celebrate the real shernis of the world. The powerful track features Vidya Balan along with Mira Erda, Natasha Noel, Eshna Kutty and Trinetra Haldar and celebrates their stories of resilience. The song is sung by Akasa and Raftaar.
MAIN SHERNI TRACK CELEBRATES REAL SHERNIS OF THE WORLD
Main Sherni is a nod to the courage and resilience of the real-like shernis, women who have beaten the odds and managed to carve a niche for themselves, all the while ensuring they do not conform to the norms. The music video features Vidya Balan, along with Mira Erda, F4 Racer and Driver Coach; Natasha Noel, body-positivity influencer and Yoga trainer; Eshna Kutty, a social-media influencer and hula-hoop dancer; and Trinetra Haldar, one of the first transgender doctors in Karnataka.
Apart from these, the song also features Jayshree Mane, a frontline warrior at BYL Nair Hospital; Riddhi Arya, a student who delivers food to frontline warriors; security guard Anita Devi; Seema Duggal, a teacher; house help Archana Jadav, among others.
VIDYA BALAN ON MAIN SHERNI
Speaking about the track, Sherni actress Vidya Balan said, “The music video Main Sherni is our tribute to all the women across the globe who have this indomitable spirit of never giving up. Sherni is special for all of us and with this film and music video, we are celebrating women who have shown us that there is nothing a woman can’t do. Just like Vidya Vincent, my character in the movie, we want to show that women are fearless and powerful … and that you don’t have to roar to be a tigress. This is what we have tried to capture in this anthem.
VIDYA BALAN’S PREP FOR SHERNI
The storyline of Sherni follows the journey of a female forest officer navigating through her marriage with her rather unusual job. Talking about how she prepared for her role, Vidya Balan said, “I actually met with a couple of forest officers to understand what exactly their job entails – the study involved in training to be a forest officer, the various postings and the challenges they posed. The nature of the job is such that it can be physically arduous and even dangerous at times which was therefore traditionally male dominated but these female officers shared how they then negotiate their way around the patriarchal mindset, all of which was very helpful.

Be fearless. It’s time for the #Sherni to roar! #SherniTrailer out now: https://youtu.be/o2wg-11MWFU Meet #SherniOnPrime, June 18 (sic).

Kangana Ranaut recently called Taapsee Pannu a ‘She-Man’ on Twitter. However, after being criticized by netizens, the actress said the comment was a compliment on Taapsee’s looks.
Actress Kangana Ranaut recently targetted her contemporary Taapsee Pannu on Twitter by calling her ‘She-man.’ However, after being criticized by Twitter users, the Queen actress has said that she meant the comment as a compliment about Taapsee’s ‘tough looks.’
A Twitter user on Saturday commented that Kangana’s She-Man comment was ‘cheap.’ Replying to a fan of the actress, he wrote, This is equally wrong and condescending. FYI. I had never watched this before though. Also there’s a huge diff between this and the Kangana tweet.
On Friday, Kangana shared a sarcastic definition of Taapsee on a Twitter handle called ‘Urban Dictionary’ which read, “Taapsee Pannu is bollywood actress known for her befitting replies. She’s also called as the “Sasti Copy” of Indian superstar and padma shri recipient – Kangana Ranaut. She is also a member of Pappu Gang (sic),” read the definition.
The tweet was criticised by her followers who claimed that Kangana was ‘bullying’ Taapsee. One user wrote, “Then what’s the difference between you and Bullywood? All that standing up for Sushant only to turn around and do similar to someone else.” Another comment read, “Shame on you to insult another fellow female actress. We don’t know if there are bullies in Bollywood or not but you definitely are one. You preaching about anything is like devil quoting scriptures.”
The comment was also deemed to be homophobic and transphobic as the term she-man is used derogatorily against trans people.
Meanwhile, Kangana will be next seen in Thalaivi, the biopic of former Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalithaa. Taapsee, on the other hand, is currently shooting for Mithali Raj’s biopic Shabaash Mithu.
