Many die-hard fans of superstar Vidya Balan are probably anxious to see her next acting venture in Ghanchakkar. The film is being made under UTV Pictures and is also being directed by Rajkumar Gupta, whom Vidya had worked with in her previous film No One Killed Jessica (2011). Having confirmed to the Indian media that shooting for the films is near completion, Gupta also spoke about how he enjoys his working relationship with Vidya. “It’s a pleasure to work with Vidya again. Vidya is one of the best actresses we have. In Ghanchakkar, Vidya plays a character that she has not explored before. She is a brilliant actress and a wonderful human being. She simplifies everybody’s job.”
Gupta also gave a few brief details about the film and what’s in store for the audience. “Vidya plays a housewife in the film. She is one actress who can pull off any role. Ghanchakkar is a quirky comedy. We have finished 80 per cent of the shooting. We have been shooting in Mumbai and a major portion of it was shot in Chembur.”
Vidya will be seen paired together with Emraan Hashmi in this comedy film. They were previously seen in Milan Luthria’s The Dirty Picture (2011), which won Vidya numerous accolades. Gupta explained why he felt Vidya and Emraan made the ideal ‘jodi,’ compared to anyone else. “I only visualised Vidya and Emraan for this film ever since we started scripting. It’s a very unusual pairing and both of them are doing a fabulous job. Their chemistry is looking awesome on screen.”
Ghanchakkar is slated for release on 21 June 2013. The film’s music will be composed by Amit Trivedi, with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
Vidya, we are waiting for you to wow us all over again!
