Yadvi – The Dignified Princess is an Indian English film produced and directed by Jyoti Singh.[1]

The film stars Chandrachur Singh[2] and popular Indian TV actor Vibhu Raghave in key roles.[3] Miss India Worldwide 2009 Nikkitasha Marwaha also had a cameo in the film.[4] The film was released theatrically on August 25, 2017.


The film is about a real life princess raised in an extremely wealthy family who ends up losing all her privileges in her middle age. Set in 1940s India, much before the cry for feminist equality caught ground, the princess not only holds her own dignity but raises three daughters.

It showcases the life and times of Maharani Yadhuvansh Kumari, Patiala's Maharaja Bhupinder Singh of Patiala.[5]

The movie tells the story of integrity and true grit in face of unexpected adversity. Yadvi, will take you on her journey through the India of Kings and Queens, of Princes and polygyny. Her deep internal strength bolstering her family honour will inspire viewers.
