 Vidya Balan Looks Forward to Starring in Bengali, Malayalam Films

Vidya Balan hopes that she gets interesting offers in future

Highlights

  • Bollywood actress Viday Balan, who often gets interesting scripts from Southern filmmakers, has not been able to work in their movies due to lack of planning. The actress, however, is hopeful of working in the vernacular medium in future.
  • The 36-year old, who carved a niche for herself in the Hindi film industry with her performance in films such as Parineeta, Paa, Ishqiya and Kahaani, is keen to expand her horizon as an actor.
  • "I keep getting offers from Malayalam, Telugu, Tamil, Marathi, Bengali filmmakers. I have been excited by scripts in Marathi, Bengali and Malayalam, but they don't plan well in advance so the dates don't match," Vidya told IANS.
  • "Some scripts I have really liked but because of time I have not been able to do them, but hopefully, sometime in future I will do an interesting film in any one of the languages.
  • "Tamil and Telugu filmmakers have not yet offered me exciting roles, honestly which is why I am looking forward to do Malayali and Bengali films. I always look forward to an exciting film," she added.
  • Currently seen as a detective in Bobby Jasoos, the actress is happy that woman-centric films are doing well at the box office.
  • "It's fantastic if a good film works as you feel good. It's not about every woman-centric film working; a good film will always work. It's not that easy for women centric films to get good opening, but if it works it's a huge thing.
  • "I always say that good films will definitely work. Queen and Kahaani have both set examples."
