Vidya Balan wants to romance Shahrukh Khan & Hrithik Roshan
But they aren’t the only actors the Mala jau de item lady wants to get jiggy with
If you thought that after back-to-back hits like The Dirty Picture and Kahaani – whose success to a great extent rests on Vidya Balan’s well padded shoulders – she intends to do only solo actor scripts, you are mistaken. The leading lady, touted as a ‘Khan’ coz of the box office collections of her last two films – has a list of actors she’d like to be paired opposite.
The first name that came to her mind is SRK…not her beau Siddharth Roy Kapur, but the king of romance, Shahrukh Khan. At a recent press conference the Kahaani babe said she’d like to do a relationship-centric romantic film with the King. Reason: “When you think of romance, only two names come to mind, Rajesh Khanna and Shahrukh Khan. I grew up watching Shahrukh play the ultimate romance hero. I guess every girl wants a Raj.” Obviously, she is a fan of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge!
Hrithik Roshan is the other actor that Vidya would like to act with. If you remember, a while ago rumour was that Karan Johar was adapting Amish Tripathi’s The Immortals Of Meluha, to star the Agneepath actor as Shiva and the Kahaani lady as Parvati. But it later turned to be just a rumour, so the Mala jau de item lady will have to wait a while for that pairing, wethinks.
However, Vidya’s list of desirable co-stars isn’t restricted to people she hasn’t worked with. B-town’s current favourite leading lady, who will be next seen in Vishal Bhardwaj’s Ek Thi Daayan opposite Emraan Hashmi, says, “I would love to pair with Abhishek (Paa co-star)… It’s been long. I am very greedy to work with good actors and directors.”
Does that mean actors who haven’t made it to Vidya’s list aren’t doing a good job? We are not saying it, just wondering….
