Vidya will be seen as a six-month pregnant woman throughout Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani
Vidya Balan will be seen in a totally different avatar in Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani. The actress will be seen as a woman with a
six-month baby belly. And it is not just in passing. The actress will be seen with a big bump throughout the film.
Shot in Kolkata and London the film will be out some time mid 2011. A source reveals, "Vidya's character is that of a
pregnant woman whose husband travels from London to India for work. However, he goes missing and she comes to Kolkata
in search of him."
Not without her
Sujoy, who just wrapped the Kolkata schedule, confirms, "It's the story of a woman who's six months pregnant and her
journey. I had written the script keeping Vidya in mind. I wouldn't have made the film without her. For me she's a perfectionist
who has beautifully brought the character alive."
He adds that she met the challenges of playing an expecting mom rather well, "She made it look so effortless. She never
compromised on any aspect of filmmaking. Since cinema is a visual medium it was very important for her to look the part.
There is lot of simplicity in her character and at the same time great turmoil within.
Also there were boundaries because a pregnant woman isn't Batman or Superman. She can't do much, there's only so much
you can make her do. But the beauty lies in the vulnerability and subtle nuances that she's used to play the character."
