With ‘The Dirty Picture’ still running in theatres,Balan has decided to take it easy,instead of delivering a ‘premature baby’.
Balan,who just turned 33,has had a hectic 2011 with promotions and other events related to her two big releases last year — ‘No One Killed Jessica’ and ‘The Dirty Picture’. So,has decided to back up her next baby Kahaani,which had been confirmed for January earlier.
“Thankfully,as things stand today,’Kahaani’ would now arrive only in March next year so that the ‘expectant mom’ can relax for a while,” said a close 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 increased.
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.
