Vidya nervous about comical role in ‘Ghanchakkar’

MUMBAI, June 3:
After winning accolades for portraying strong roles in ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Kahaani’, actress Vidya Balan is nervous about stepping into the genre of comedy with ‘Ghanchakkar’.
“We still haven’t started working on this film yet… hoping to start in August. It is my first comedy film so I am very nervous.
“I would not like to talk about my character in the film,” Vidya, 34, told reporters here last night, at an event organised by Indo-American Association to felicitate the actress for her contribution to Indian cinema.
‘Ghanchakkar’ is a quirky film that narrates the tale of Emraan Hashmi, an ex-conman who is laid back and has a taste for finer things in life. He has an ambitious Punjabi wife, Vidya, who has her own notions of the world.
The story shows about how Emraan gets sucked into a ‘chakkar’ and has to suffer at the hands of two conmen – one with an ailment and other with bad sense of humour. All this leads to confusion and chaos and creates comical situations.
‘Ghanchakkar’ re-unites Vidya with her ‘The Dirty Picture’ co-star Emraan. Produced by UTV, the film is directed by Rajkumar Gupta of ‘Aamir’ and ‘No One Killed Jessica’ fame. The film goes on floors in August.
During her felicitation by Namaste America, Vidya said, “I am thankful to them for felicitating me. It is a very special moment. I am overwhelmed. I feel blessed and honoured.”
On the occasion, Vidya’s father P R Balan said he was proud of her daughter’s acting in ‘The Dirty Picture’. He said he did not find anything vulgar in it and had predicted that the film would be a superhit.
Vidya said her parents liked the film and nothing mattered more to her. “I was in between promotions and when I reached Prithvi theatre they all were crying after watching the film because I died in the end. My parents have approved of the film and nothing matters more to me,” Vidya said. (PTI)
