While Vishal Bharadwaj's KAMINEY has been in the news ever since its announcement to its completion, not much has been written about his other film, ISHQIYA, starring the talented actress Vidya Balan, actor par excellence Naseruddin Shah and Arshad ''Circuit'' Warsi. ISHQIYA is being directed by Vishal's assistant, Abhishek Chaubey.
Vidya Balan is said to be playing the role of a scheming woman, hailing from Uttar Pradesh, and is two timing the uncle and nephew, played by Naseer and Arshad. Vidya Balan is taking lessons in Udru and learning the rural dialect of UP and during the outdoor shooting of ISHQIYA; Vidya simply fell in love with the beautiful natural surroundings. She enjoyed boat rides, horse riding and the serene natural beauty of the locales (Wai). Since she is not much of a horse rider, Vidya developed a pain in her back but she still stuck to her love for outdoor sports and was seen indulging in them often during her off times.
Well, looks like Vidya is in love with nature and is a sport too!
