As an actor, Vidya Balan is known to go all out to immerse herself in the films that she signs. For her next release, Ghanchakkar, she’s gone a step further. She’s allowed a few of her personal items to be used in the film.

The actor’s role is of a Punjabi housewife, and she wants it to be as realistic as possible. A source close to the film reveals, “Vidya, along with director Rajkumar Gupta, had a long discussion. They eventually agreed upon the fact that her part would look more authentic if she uses some of her personal belongings to decorate her home in the film.”

It seems, that this was around the time when Vidya was shifting her things from her Chembur home to her new home with husband Siddharth Roy Kapur. The source says, “She has given some of her paintings, artefacts, decorative items and even her own bed sheets — all of which have been used in the movie. It’s amazing how nice everything looks.” When contacted, the production house confirmed this news.

The movie, which is produced by UTV Motion Pictures, will see Vidya paired with her The Dirty Picture (2011) co-star Emraan Hashmi. Apparently, Emraan plays a conman and Vidya plays his loud, north Indian wife in the film. She will also be seen sporting a completely new look.
