They are working together for the first time and like true professionals, Farhan Akhtar and Vidya Balan are going out of their way to get comfortable with each other. The two actors, who were supposed to attend a week-long workshop for their upcoming film, Shaadi Ke Side Effects, have decided to extend it by almost a fortnight.

“They wanted to get comfortable with each other before the filming starts in a few weeks. Saket Chaudhary (director) wanted them to spend some time with each other for that. The duo was more than ready to go in for the workshops,” says an insider.
This film will mark Ekta Kapoor’s second big production with Vidya after The Dirty Picture (2011). Balaji Motion Pictures has tied up with Pritish Nandy Communications for this movie. The sequel to Pyaar Ke Side Effects (2006) stars Vir Das and Ram Kapoor among others.
