Vidya Balan sheds light on her 15-month gap between Kahaani and Ghanchakkar
It was March 2012 when Vidya Balan ’s last Bollywood film Kahaani was released. But Vidya still cannot realise that she has been away from the big screen for 15 long months. The 35-year-old actress has pinned high hopes on her upcoming release Ghanchakkar .
In a recent interview the actress said, "There was a 15-month break after Kahaani and I did not realise that I was away for so long. But it was a not a break, I was doing things. After Kahaani, I started preparing for Ghanchakkar, I got married. I just took a month-long break. Then I began Shaadi Ke Side Effects. Then the Cannes Festival. I have been working these past 15 months.” In Ghanchakkar, directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, Vidya plays a Punjabi housewife opposite Emraan Hashmi .
She said further on the film, "Playing a loud, Punjabi housewife was not at all easy. I had to stop working out so that I would look the part. It was difficult having to go through the same Dirty Picture phase again. But I saw the film few days ago and I am really happy with it.” The National Award-winning actress is presently busy promoting the film not only in different cities, but also through reality shows and leading dailies. She said on her promotional journey, "I enjoy meeting people. Hence I enjoy promotions. Earlier, it used to be a little difficult as I was shy. But I enjoy it more now. I have fun.” On Wednesday the actress also paid a visit to the Golden Temple in Amritsar while promoting the film in Punjab. Ghanchakkar will hit the theatres tomorrow, June 28.
