Vidya Balan to lose weight for Kahaani sequel!

And according to director Sujoy Ghosh, it’s cakewalk for the actor. Really?

We’ve been buying excuses that said Vidya Balan’s well-rounded shape is to fit into the character of the scripts she’s been choosing. But that’s about to change, folks. Director Sujoy Ghosh has announced that VB dearest will have to shed a few kilos and look ‘agile’ for the Kahaani sequel titled Kahaani 2 that’s all set to go on floors by May 2013.

On hearing that, for a fraction of a second we thought that our chubby actor might have to go through a rigorous regime shedding all the inches she’s been piling on over the years. But hey, we were wrong. “Given the kind of person Vidya is who can both gain and lose weight easily, this shouldn’t be a tall task for her,” Ghosh said in an interview. Really?

If that’s the case, how come Vidya never looked amazingly slim even in projects like Parineeta, Heyy Baby and Kismet Konnection that didn’t really demand the heroine to be on the heavier side? Anyway. If the director is sounding so confident, we totally trust him.

But wait, wasn’t there a buzz that director Raj Kumar Gupta wanted Vidya to stay ‘round’ till the time she is shooting for Ghanchakkar? If yes, will that leave Balan with enough time to get into the ‘agile’ frame she’s expected to portray? Oh… we forgot… that’s cakewalk for her, right Sujoy?

So we’ll keep a close watch on how Vidya tackles this weighty issue, and how easy it actually is. And maybe Sonakshi Sinha too could learn from the same. What say, readers, makes sense? Wink, wink.
