Vidya Balan refuses to play second fiddle

Despite the good money on offer and the stamp of a commercial film, Vidya has rejected the role in Shootout At Wadala. Reason: The Dirty Picture actor doesn’t want to get lost in a film that’s overcrowded with leading men

Success, just like failure, changes many things. It certainly did change a few things for Vidya Balan. Riding high on the success of The Dirty Picture’s BO success, the 34-year-old is not keen on doing films that give more prominence to the male stars. Vidya was supposed to play underworld don Manya Surve’s girlfriend in Sanjay Gupta’s Shootout at Wadala but now it doesn’t seem like a good idea to the actor anymore. Vidya’s agendas have definitely gone through a sea change after being applauded for her Silk Smitha act by the audience and critics alike. Vidya has now decided that she won’t play a regular Bollywood heroine in a male-centric film. Calling it a natural progression, she says that she wants to essay more challenging and powerful roles than the one offered to her by Sanjay Gupta. Interestingly, Ekta Kapoor, the producer The Dirty Picture, who played a pivotal role in Vidya’s success story, is also the producer of Shootout at Wadala. But we hear that this time Vidya had to say a firm no to the television soap queen. Will this refusal to act in Shootout at Wadala sour Vidya’s friendship with Ekta? It definitely could, considering we know that Ms Kapoor doesn’t take such rejections lying down! And will being so choosy affect Vidya’s soaring career? Well, only time will tell!
