Vidya Balan has been signed for the film MILTE HAIN which is said to be a mature romantic comedy. The film would be directed by Meghna Gulzar and what her as well as producer Sanjay Gupta is the fact that he would be working with Vidya Balan for the first time.

"It should be great fun to have Vidya in the film. For a mature film like this, we need an actress of substance and we have it in the form of Vidya. She has been fantastic in ISHQIYA and PAA. Also, since Meghna has already proven her mettle by directing 'Poornamashi' (Amrita Singh, Minissha Lamba) in DUS KAHANIYAAN, I am confident that she would handle the unique subject of MILTE HAIN quite well", Gupta sounds confident here.

The film is based on a play titled 'Double Act' which has been written by Barry Creyton. Since Gupta had already procured rights of the play and adapted it into the film's screenplay, he wanted to bring the film on floors soon. Also, since Meghna was already through with the entire writing process, the need of the hour was to speed up the process on getting all necessary logistics in place.

"That's right", admits Sanjay, "Much hard work has already gone into putting things right on paper. Now it's a matter of filming it. We are finalizing dates with the cast and in all likelihood we would be going on floors early next year. In fact by March 2011, we plan to finish the film as well. We would be shooting extensively in London and Edinburgh."

Meanwhile the hunt is on for the male lead. "That too would be announced pretty soon. Stay tuned", is all that Gupta is willing to commit before signing off.
