“Thankfully, as things stand today, Kahaani would now arrive only in March next year so that the ‘expectant mom’ can relax for a while”, informs a friend of the actress, “Vidya really needs a break. It would have been virtually inhuman for her to move straight from The Dirty Picture to Kahaani in four weeks flat. Not just would it have taken a toll on her health, it would also have been unjustified for the audience to see her in a role which is totally different from the ‘dirty’ character that she played in Milan Luthria’s film.”
In Kahaani, Vidya plays the role of a pregnant woman who is in search of her husband. A dramatic affair, the film is directed by Sujoy Ghosh (of Jhankaar Beats fame). When The Dirty Picture started making waves and ensured a sure-shot success for Vidya, it turned out to be a winning preposition for Kahaani since the actress’ fan base has only widened further in the last few weeks. However, the makers have decided to hold on for a while and let the euphoria of The Dirty Picture and then arrive with Kahaani instead of coming up with a rush job just in order to milk Vidya’s superstardom.
“Yes, Kahaani will now arrive on 9th March. Thank goodness for that as Kahaani is my baby. I would now be ‘delivering’ after two months”, quips Vidya, “If it would have arrived earlier, it would have turned out to be premature. Neither Sujoy nor I wanted that.”
Meanwhile, even though Vidya has been inundated with offers, especially in last few weeks, Vidya isn’t picking up anything in haste.
“No, I haven’t signed any film so far. When I am shooting for a film, I don’t go through narrations or script reading. Entire 2011 went into filming and I just didn’t get any time to go through any scripts. I have just started doing that a week ago. Hopefully during this period of break, I would take some decisions”, she says.
We are waiting to hear more on this Vidya.
