Recently while unveiling the trailer of her upcoming film KAHAANI, Vidya shared about her matinee idol. "When the song 'Ek Do Teen' came tab muje Madhuri Dixit ka bhoot chada tha. I used to dance and pose in front of the mirror. I used to start dancing on the number every time it played. Somewhere I started nurturing a feeling within that I want to be a junior Madhuri Dixit. It's so true while half the nation was feeling like that, I was one of them and then it kept evolving. Tab se yeh actor banne ka keeda mujme paida ho gaya," says Vidya.
