While Bollywood actress Vidya Balan enthusiastically essayed Silk Smitha in the biopic THE DIRTY PICTURE, it seems Vidya is not so keen doing a remake thing.
||SRIDEVI AND VIDYA BALAN
Buzz doing the rounds suggest that Vidya has been approached to essay Sridevi's role in the remake of SADMA, which any actress would vie for. However, the go-to actress, who has mostly done performance-driven roles, surprisingly declined the offer.
Sridevi's award-winning performance in the classic continues to remain one of her finest to date. Ad filmmaker Llyod Baptista, who is now remaking the film, approached Balan to play Sridevi's role in the film.
A close source revealed the reason behind Vidya not taking up the project, “The makers met with Vidya recently to discuss the movie. While the film did excite her and she is of course a huge Sridevi fan, Vidya's hands are full right now as she will be working on three films this year.”
“Vidya also believes that she will not be able to do justice to Sridevi's remarkable performance in the film and will not be able to completely focus on the film because of her packed schedule,” the source further added.
Well, we certainly understand Vidya's dedication towards her commitments. But we also believe that Vidya shouldn't let go off this opportunity. If Vidya is of the belief that she will not be able to do justice to the role for whatever reason, we would suggest the actress should rethink over it.
Who can ever forget Vidya's award winning performances in the films like ISHQIYA, PAA, PARINEETA, BHOOL BHULAIYAA, KAHAANI, etc? If Vidya can attempt these films, SADMA remake would be like a cakewalk for. After playing author-backed roles and creating a niche for herself in the industry, we believe Vidya is apt for SADMA remake or vice-versa.
Moreover, Vidya's last few films haven't done well at Box-office. So, giving SADMA remake a preference might once again strengthen her position at BO or this performance driven role might once again gain her top spot in the industry.
If Vidya considers doing the role, we are sure she will shine through and through much like in her earlier projects.
