Gearing up to begin the shooting of the sequel to her 2012 hit Kahaani, Bollywood actor Vidya Balan has said that she cannot talk about Sujoy Ghosh’s sequel to 2012 hit Kahaani, otherwise the director will ‘slit’ her throat! “I’m very excited to say the least, we start shooting next month and that’s all I’m allowed to say because Sujoy Ghosh will slit my throat otherwise. Yes, I’m looking forward to shooting again for Kahaani with Sujoy.”
Vidya, who just completed her part of shooting for Amitabh Bachchan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui starrer Te3n, Balan says her part in Te3n was a sort of preparation for her role in Sujoy Ghosh next. “We shot for Te3n and in the film, I have a special appearance but it was still fun because Sujoy produced the film and I went back to Kolkata for the shoot, and the team was more or less the same.”
Here’s a reminder of what Vidya did in Kahaani
“Ribhu (Dasgupta) is a very interesting director, and of course Mr. Bachchan and Nawaz, so it was a good team and I think that was some sort of a preparation for me to get back into Kahaani,” Vidya said.
Vidya, who has often claimed that Bengal is her second home, had to reiterate it again when a journalist mistook her for being from Bengal, perhaps considering her popular Bengali roles in Parineeta and Kahaani. “I’m from Kerala, but I’m born and brought up here, but I do consider Bengal my second home,” she said.
After numerous reports of the sequel being shelved and delayed, Sujoy this month clarified that the film was definitely on and was in pre-production stages.
Vidya had bagged the Filmfare Award for best actress and also won numerous other awards for Kahaani.
