Bollywood actress Vidya Balan says that Urumi is a gift to her parents.
Vidya's parents who hail from Palakkad had always wanted to see their daughter in a Malayalam movie.
But she never showed interest in acting in a Malayalam movie especially after her debut movie Lohithadas' Chakram was shelved. Lohi later cast Meera Jasmine instead of Vidya when the film started rolling again.
Vidya later became one of the most wanted heroines in Bollywood after the release of Parineeta.
