Mumbai: Vidya Balan, who has been playing versatile role since she stepped in Bollywood, will now be seen doing some action. Not only this, the actor has been under constant watch for her weight and since the character demands, she will shed some ounces in her forthcoming film Kahaani 2. Filmmaker Sujoy Ghosh says audiences will get to see a “new” Vidya, as the actress will perform some action scenes in the thriller.
Ghosh said, “As per the demand of the role, there will be a lot of action in the sequel. So hopefully, audiences will get to see a new Vidya in Kahaani 2.”
“Not too much, but as per the script, Vidya will have few action scenes in the film. So as the script demands, I had asked her to be in shape. There will be some physical activities that Vidya will have to do in the film,” he added.
Kahaani, shot in Kolkata, came in the beginning of 2012 and was a super hit. The film revolved around Vidya’s character, who was in search of her missing husband.
Now Ghosh is working on the script of the second installment, which will repeat characters from the original.
“The script is not yet ready. We are in the process of developing the script. Once the script is ready, the film will go on the floors next year,” he said.
“Few portions will be shot in Kolkata and many of the characters will be repeated,” he added.
