Have you seen the promotional interviews of Mission Mangal? Well then there is no chance you have missed out on Vidya Balan's cheerful personality and her energy. She is chirpy, jovial and can make anyone happy with her charismatic aura. Going by the fun personality that she has, we gathered she would have been a prankster on the sets of Mission Mangal. And she indeed was! But Vidya Balan was not alone, she had a partner-in-crime, Akshay Kumar. In an exclusive interaction with BollywoodLife, Vidya Balan revealed how she learnt to play pranks from her co-stars Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn.
She said, "My partner in crime was definitely Akshay Kumar (on the sets of Mission Mangal). Actually, I am trained under him only, because early on in my career, during Heyy Babyy and Bhool Bhulaiyaa, I used to watch him have so much fun. And also from Ajay Devgn, with whom I worked in Halla Bol. In dono ke saath kaam karke, maine sab ikh liya aur uske baad maine shuru kar dia paintra apna."
On being asked about her plans to celebrate Mission Mangal and Nerkonda Paarvai's success, Vidya added, "Today, Shanti, who is from the agency I work with, asked me, 'Where is the party.?' And I asked her to request my producers (of Shakuntala Devi biopic) to make adjustments in the schedule so that I can party. Otherwise, there's no time, I would have loved to have a party at this point. But honestly, I have just two weeks to prep for Shakuntala, I have to jump into that. Maybe inshallah, when I come back from the London schedule, around Diwali time or something, I will have one."
Besides, Vidya also spoke about the success of Mission Mangal and told us, "From the time I heard the narration, I knew this film is good and it will do well. I don't think much about the numbers (box office), Kitna and all. Before Mission Mangal, I never had clarity about how well a film would do. But this time, through the narration, film making process and the promotions, I had clarity."
