While it is 'Ooh Laa Laa' time for Vidya Balan currently, courtesy her dare bare act in THE DIRTY PICTURE which is being noticed in a big way, another film of hers has taken a backseat for now. KAHAANI, which was launched close to a year ago, has gone slow in favour of THE DIRTY PICTURE which is turning out to be Vidya's next big arrival.
'After ISHQIYA, Vidya had signed two films - NO ONE KILLED JESSICA and KAHAANI. While she first shot for the former and the film was released early this year, it was KAHAANI that she started working on around the same time. After she had completed a major part of this Sujoy Ghosh directed film, THE DIRTY PICTURE came her way. Ever since then there has been a lot of noise made around this Milan Luthria directed biopic', says an industry observer. CHECK OUT: Was Vidya uncomfortable with THE DIRTY PICTURE?
A thriller shot in Kolkata, KAHAANI has Vidya Balan playing a pregnant woman on the look-out for her husband who has gone missing. On the other hand in THE DIRTY PICTURE, Vidya can be seen exuding oomph while enacting the role of Silk Smitha.
'If KAHAANI would have been Vidya's first release after NO ONE KILLED JESSICA, which would have meant two back to back hardcore performance oriented roles for her,' says a source, 'Call it coincidental or intentional but THE DIRTY PICTURE arriving should be a win-win situation for all involved. Vidya can expect to showcase a different side of her while KAHAANI too would further benefit when it releases since audience would be in for a shock to see her in a different avatar all over again.'
It is turning out to be a winning situation for KAHAANI too because now it would be seeing a solo release on 20th January. For Bollywood followers there is a little bit of trivia here because Vidya's NO ONE KILLED JESSICA too had released in January this year and turned into a good success.
