I am nervous about my first comedy ‘Ghanchakkar’: Vidya Balan
Vidya Balan has been doing different roles in Bollywood film, she did ‘The Dirty Picture’ and ‘Kahaani’ and now the actress is a doing her first comedy film.
Actress Vidya Balam has said that she is nervous about her first comedy film ‘Ghanchakkar’, with actor Emraan Hashmi. The film is directed by Rajkumar Gupta who earlier directed ‘No One Killed Jassica’.
Talking to media, Viday Balan said, “I am nervous about the film because it is my first comedy. I am worried whether I will be able to strike the funny chord with my audience. Shooting is currently on and I am really working hard for it.”
Vidya Balan was talking to media in New Delhi as she arrived to attend the CII Media and Entertainment Summit 2012.
Talking about her last two film ‘The Dirty Picture’ which shows her in a dancing star and ‘Kahaani’ about a pregnant woman’s search for her missing husband, has outstanding success story on box office.
The actress said, “My films have not completely broken the concept of elite audience but they have tried to blur it. Middle class is afluid class as they aspire to become the elite. But we cannot say that they didn’t watch it because ‘Kahaani’ earned 60 crores and it denotes that other sections of the society also related to it.”
Viday Balan tries to keep herself away from regular dance and song films. She said, “Today people are more receptive to seeing and thereby participating in the change that is taking place in thesociety through cinema. There is an after effect of a film and that influences people in the society. Cinema is influenced by what’s happening around us.”
Further, she said that she decided to step in the Silk Smitha’s role in ‘The Dirty Picture’ as Silk represented the average Indian woman.
Balan said, “I was not sure about it five years ago but I chose to do the film now because Silk Smitha is a woman who lives her life to the fullest and at the same time she knows how to fight for her rights. It was that resonance which made me choose the role.”
