Vidya Balan in a hard-hitting real life drama

Last Updated: Wed, Nov 16, 2005 07:51 hrs

The on-the-move Vidya Balan remains completely taken up with Vinod Chopra's cinema and totally loyal to his banner arguing "Why is belonging to a camp considered such a negative thing in this industry?" she argues rationally.

She has just completed Chopra's Eklavya and will soon complete another film The Mahatma Versus Munnabhai (directed by Raj Kumar Hirani) where she plays a radio jockey, for the same banner.

"I'm proud to be associated with one of the best banners in the country. And it isn't any kind of restlessness that has made me sign Sourabh Narang's film. There were many offers. But it was this one which made me sit up. I hadn't even seen Saurabh's first film Vastu Shastra. When I heard the script I was completely moved. Any actress would be foolish to turn down such a film."

The project to be produced by Anurradha Prasad (wife of Congress Parliamentarian Rajiv Shukla and producer of several successful tv serials) of BAG films, is actually inspired by the research that Sourabh undertook while directing Haqeeqat, a reality show on Sahara.
