Chilling time: Vidya Balan is spending some quality time with her family these days.

Vidya Balan is going to be on vacation for the next couple of months. Reason: the shooting of her next two films, Chenab Gandhi and Pa, has been pushed back.

Family time
"No, the shooting hasn't been postponed. It's just a coincidence that I haven't signed any new projects lately. So, it's going to be a two month vacation for me. From mid September, I start shooting for a Vishal Bharadwaj film. But for now I'm getting to spend some quality time with my family," says a delighted Balan.

"My elder sister is home too. I'm loving it."

The other day she was telling didi how five years ago, she had never imagined she'd be a movie star. "Today, I'm nine movies old of which five have been big hits. Even Kismat Konnection is doing well," she says.

Balan is busy reading scripts. "And I'm also watching the Sex and the City series, back to back. It's great fun," she says.

Ask her about her recent release, Kismat Konnection, and Balan admits that she was a little nervous before the release.

Facts and figures
"For the first time in my life, I was calling up people from the trade and quizzing them on net and gross collections," she laughs. "Today, since I have all the time in the world, I'm keen on knowing the exact business the film does."
