The Dirty Picture actor says she deserves it after working non-stop for two-and-a-half years
Vidya Balan has seen super success with The Dirty Picture and she can’t wait for her next film Kahaani to release. Not only because she is excited about the film but because once it releases she can finally take it easy. Vidya, who is busy promoting Kahaani while carting around a fake pregnant belly all over the country, wants to take a break. “I am close to saying yes to a film which will not start for another three months. So I really think I need that break because for the past two-and-a-half-years I have been busy with my films. So now I do need that time off to soak everything in. Then I will probably do some dirty dancing,” the 33-year-old actor told IANS. “I was hoping the film (The Dirty Picture) would do well, but I had no idea that the film would do so well. I feel blessed and I am looking for new words for blessed, humbled and overwhelmed.”
Sujoy Ghosh is probably feeling the same way, since Vidya agreed to star in his film Kahaani after his last two films Aladin and Home Delivery bombed at the box office. “I am here to act. I am not saying I will do only solo heroine projects or like that. I want to do different genres of films. I can’t do the same thing again and again. When I am getting variety, then why will I not take that advantage? He (Sujoy) is an intelligent man, one of the most intelligent men I have met. Two of his films didn’t work, but he has put things together this time around. I am hoping it will work out. But I think the intention is right,” she said. We do appreciate her supporting her director, but hasn’t she heard the proverb, ‘The road to hell is paved with good intentions’?
