  • Vidya Balan makes everybody's job easy, says director Raj Kumar Gupta.

Actress Vidya Balan has finished almost 80 per cent of the shooting of her next film Ghanchakkar, and the movie’s director, Rajkumar Gupta, can only sing praises for her.

Gupta earlier directed Vidya in No One Killed Jessica.

“It’s a pleasure to work with Vidya again. Vidya is one of the best actresses we have. In Ghanchakkar, Vidya plays a character that she has not explored before. She is a brilliant actress and a wonderful human being. She simplifies everybody’s job,” Gupta said.

Ghanchakkar is a comedy featuring Emraan Hashmi opposite Vidya. Hashmi plays an ex conman.

Giving out a few details, Gupta said: “Vidya plays a housewife in the film. She is one actress who can pull off any role. Ghanchakkar is a quirky comedy. We have finished 80 per cent of the shooting. We have been shooting in Mumbai and a major portion of it was shot in Chembur.”

“I only visualised Vidya and Emraan for this film ever since we started scripting. It’s a very unusual pairing and both of them are doing a fabulous job. Their chemistry is looking awesome on screen,” said Gupta.
