Actress Vidya Balan was initially skeptical to take up the role of a Punjabi housewife in her forthcoming movie Ghanchakkar.

After doing intense roles in The Dirty Picture and Kahaani,Vidya was nervous to step into the unfamiliar territory of a comedy movie with Ghanchakkar.

“When I was offered this role,I thought I could not do it. I am glad my director convinced me. I had fun doing this quirky film. I hope people enjoy it too,” Vidya told reporters here at the audio launch of Ghanchakkar.

To get into the skin of the character,Vidya learnt Punjabi.

“First,I learnt bad words in Punjabi. I think it makes things easy. I wanted to be comfortable and hence learnt the language,” she said.
