Vidya Balan’s loud, colourful avatar in Ghanchakkar

It was a new experience for me, says actress


Mumbai: Vidya Balan, who has played intense roles in films such as ‘No One Killed Jessica’ and ‘Kahaani’, will now be seen in a very loud and colourful avatar in ‘Ghanchakkar’. She says she enjoyed the experience.

“As an actor, the best thing is that I am getting to play different avatars and I am simply enjoying it. It can’t get any better because the promos [of ‘Ghanchakkar’] have got a great response. It was a new experience for me because she is so loud,” the 34-year-old said on Saturday at the unveiling of the cover page of Cineblitz magazine featuring her.

“I did not believe that I will be able to say the dialogues with the same loudness, but Rajkumar Gupta got it out of me and I hope it is good,” she added.

In ‘Ghanchakkar’, Balan shares screen space with Emraan Hashmi.

Balan is currently also shooting for ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ with Farhan Akhtar. She says it is very fascinating to work with someone as versatile as Akhtar.

“The shooting is on and I am enjoying it. This is the first time I am working with an actor-writer-director-musician. It is a different experience, it is very interesting,” Balan said.

“Farhan has a holistic perspective of things and as an actor, that’s extremely fascinating for me. Saket Chaudhary is making ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ after ‘Pyaar Ke Side Effects’,” she added.

‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’ also features Vir Das, Ram Kapoor and Gautami Kapoor. It is slated to release in December.
