Vidya Balan, currently gearing up for the release of TE3N, has praised actor-politician Jaya Bachchan, saying the 68-year-old personifies simplicity, purity, grace and transparency. “Watching Abhimaan for the ninth time...Oh so beautiful in her white saris, Jaya ma’am personifies simplicity, purity, grace and transparency of white,” Vidya tweeted.

The Kahaani actor also says that megastar Amitabh Bachchan’s performance makes the 1973 musical drama timeless. “In her performance. I want to hug her whenever I watch this film...and Mr.B is so real as the (Abhi)maan...That’s what makes this film timeless,” she added.

Vidya, who was last seen on the big screen in the 2015 film Hamari Adhuri Kahani, also has only good words to share about the film’s music. “And what music! Lastly I wish I’d had the chance to work with Hrishikesh Mukherjee (late director). Most of my favourites are his films...Abhimaan, Anand (and) Golmaal,” Vidya wrote.

On the work front, the Ghanchakkar star is shooting for the upcoming second instalment of the Hindi mystery thriller Kahaani.
