The much talked about the poster of Tumhari Sulu has made its way to Vidya Balan's wall as an oil painting.
The image of a happy empowered Sulu (Vidya Balan), raring to go, in a pink sari with a red cape around her neck, has caught the audience fancy, so much so that it even prompted celebrated writer-columnist Twinkle Khanna to tweet to Vidya: `more power to your sari/cape.`
Noted ad filmmaker and director Suresh Triveni got one of Bollywood's oldest poster artists, Laxman Subhash Jadhav, to make an oil painting of the poster and gifted it to his `favourite actress` to adorn her home wall. (Picture attached).
Said Vidya, `Tumhari Sulu has been a wonderful journey to say the least. The character of Sulu is extra special - a curious, fun-loving and enthusiastic housewife who goes from apron to cape. When Suresh gifted me this painting, I was delighted and put it up on my wall almost immediately. It is a treasured gift.`
Said Suresh, `I saw many paintings of Vidya's earlier film posters at her house. That's where the greed started. I wanted Sulu to be a part of her wall of fame. I have been dying to work with her for the longest. Doing Tumhari Sulu has been a dream come true.`
Produced by T-Series and Ellipsis Entertainment, Tumhari Sulu comes from the producers of Neerja and Hindi Medium, and releases worldwide on November 24.
