Vidya Balan is back with a bang! Vidya is all set to take the audience on a thrilling cinematic experience with her next suspense drama, ‘Kahaani 2’, directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The trailer, which was launched yesterday by the actress, has got a fabulous response and some rave reviews from the critics and the audience alike.
Vidya, who was present at the trailer launch of the film, was asked about how she felt when people referred to her as the ‘female Aamir Khan’. The actress smiled and said, “My films should also do the kind of business Aamir’s films do.. only then I will believe that I am the female Aamir Khan. But sadly, it’s far away from the truth. After all, Aamir has been working for many more years.”
Anurag Kashyap had once called Vidya Balan the female Aamir Khan of B-town for being the first ever female actor to bring in footfalls to theaters akin to male superstars. “The female star doesn’t get the amount of money which a male star gets. Male star pulls more audience in the theater as compared to female stars and that needs to be changed. Vidya Balan has brought that change and she has become female Aamir Khan and female Bachchan of Bollywood. This is very good and I wish we have more actresses like Vidya Balan,” Anurag had once said.
While she may not have worked with Aamir or any other superstars, Vidya is proud about having carved a niche for herself on her own merit. “I would like to stand on my own two feet. I don’t want to put my hand on anyone else’s shoulder to stand tall. Not that anyone else is doing it. Please don’t mistake me. I am still standing on my own feet and feel very proud about that.”
Directed by Sujoy Ghosh, ‘Kahaani 2’ stars Vidya Balan and Arjun Rampal in lead roles. The film is slated to release on 2nd December 2016.
