The exciting trailer showcases Vidya’s incredible journey set in a world full of quirky yet relatable characters, as she navigates through her marriage with her rather unusual job, all this while trying to resolve the man-animal conflict. Vidya looks impressive as the no-nonsense officer and delivers her power-packed punches with ease. It would certainly be exciting to see her lead in yet another strong role in this one.

Produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series and Abundantia Entertainment, the adventure-drama is helmed by Newton-fame director Amit Masurkar and is laced with his trademark satire. Besides Vidya Balan, the film also has an eclectic mix of actors like Sharad Saxena, Mukul Chaddha, Vijay Raaz, Ila Arun, Brijendra Kala, and Neeraj Kabi in key roles.
Sharing her excitement on the trailer launch, the versatile actress Vidya Balan says, “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.”
Speaking about working on this unconventional entertainer, director Amit Masurkar shares, “Sherni is an intricately-layered story, exploring the complex issues of conflict between humankind and animals. Vidya Balan plays a mid-level forest officer who despite obstacles and pressures, works with her team and local allies to preserve a balance in the environment. Working with her, the amazing ensemble cast, and the uber-talented crew has been an incredible experience for me. I hope that releasing Sherni on Amazon Prime Video will help this story reach a wide and diverse audience both in India and across the world.”
