Is Vidya Balan repaying a favour to Vidhu Vinod Chopra?

The producer of Ferrari Ki Sawaari gets an instant nod from the talented actor to do a Lavani number. Is this Vidya Balan’s way of staying in the good books of Vidhu Vinod Chopra, the man who gave the Kahaani actor her first Bollywood break?

Vidya Balan showcased her tremendous acting potential in her very first film, Parineeta. Directed by Pradeep Sarkar, the 2005 movie was a Vidhu Vinod Chopra production. Later, in 2006, Chopra went onto produce Raj Kumar Hirani’s Lage Raho Munna Bhai, where Vidya played the female lead opposite Sanjay Dutt. It is obvious that Vidya has always remained close to Chopra. So when he called he and expressed his wish to have her perform a Lavani-item number (Mala jau de) for his new film Ferrari Ki Sawaari, Vidya instantly agreed.

In fact, it was director Rajesh Mapuskar’s brainchild to get Vidya to dance a lavani for his Sharman Joshi-starrer. He asked his producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra if he could request Vidya to do the song. Chopra was not sure if the lady would agree. “It was so silly of me to doubt that Vidya would not be sure about doing this number. When I called her up I was highly unsure about her interest in doing a Lavani. But much to my surprise Vidya agreed to do it instantly. She was like, ‘I have been waiting for years to do a Lavani. I just can’t let this opportunity pass. I will do it for sure’,” said Chopra. Vidya, we guess, had to say yes to shaking a leg on Mala jau de. After all, Vidhu Vinod Chopra had given Vidya her very first film. But going by the warm welcome the lavani number has received and the way Vidya’s robust dance moves have been lapped up by the audience, the repaying of that long-ago favour turned out to be very explosive indeed!
