Vidya Balan is basking in the monstrous success of her two films - Mission Mangal and Nerkonda Paarvai. The actress made her debut in Tamil cinema with Boney Kapoor's production. Nerkonda Paarvai is the Tamil remake of Amitabh Bachchan and Taapsee Pannu starrer Pink (2016). It hit the silver screens on August 8 and has collected over Rs 160 crore worldwide. Needless to say, Vidya, who plays Thala Ajith's wife in Nerkonda Paarvai, is happy with the film's success. Before taking up the project, Vidya's initial reaction to Boney Kapoor's idea of Pink remake was, "Why would you remake it?" Later, the actress was convinced that this subject was needed to be told in the Tamil film industry too. Vidya Balan was glad for the fact her Tamil debut project also had Thala Ajith, who is a superstar in Tollywood.
Days after the release of Nerkonda Paarvai, when BollywoodLife sat down for an exclusive chat with Vidya Balan, the actress shared her experience of working with the South superstar. "He's so humble, amazing and incredible. A lot of people, who don't even watch Tamil films, told me he is so HOT and I am like I have worked with him," she said.
The actress, while working with the Tamil film legend, couldn't actually believe it was the man himself Thala Ajith. "I couldn't believe he is THE Thala Ajith (x2). He is so grounded, chats with everyone and these are the things that really impress me about someone. He could easily carry his success on his sleeves, but he doesn't."
Up next, the National Award-winning actress will be seen in the Shakuntala Devi biopic. She will begin prep for the same before heading to the film's London schedule.
