Vidya focuses tales on extramarital affair
Starting off as a simple girl in 'Parineeta' to being a seductress in 'The Dirty Picture', actress Vidya Balan has portrayed diverse roles and now wants to do something on the strong subject of extramarital affair. "I want to do something where there is lots of drama as our lives are dramatic. May be do something like 'Arth', 'Silsila' kind of film, something on extra marital affair as wherever we go we get to hear about it," Vidya said in an interview.
'Arth', a 1982 film directed by Mahesh Bhatt, starring Shabana Azmi, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Smita Patil and Raj Kiran, was about his extramarital relationship. Even Yash Chopra's 1981 film, 'Silsila' featuring Amitabh Bachchan, Jaya Bhaduri, Sanjeev Kumar and Rekha, revolved around the same topic.
Vidya even showed her interest in doing a film that would centre upon late Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. "I may like to do a biopic on Indira Gandhi or something like that," Vidya said.
However, she is now doing a comedy thriller, something that she has not tried her luck in yet, opposite Emraan Hashmi. "Comedy is something I would like to explore. And speaking of other genres like action, its something I am not interested in," she said. PTI
