Vidya Balan, who is currently busy promoting Bobby Jasoos, says she is excited to associate with Mahesh Bhatt in Humari Adhuri Kahaani.

"After Bobby Jasoos, I will start shooting for Humari Adhuri Kahaani in September. I am quite thrilled and extremely happy to be associated with Mahesh Bhatt through this film. We will soon start shooting for this film," said Vidya.

To be directed by Mohit Suri, Humari Adhuri Kahaani will be co-produced by Bhatt under his banner Vishesh Films and Fox Star Studios. 

Humari Adhuri Kahaani also features Emraan Hashmi and Rajkummar Rao.

Having made her cinematic debut in 2005 with Parineeta, an adaptation of a 1914 eponymous Bengali novel, Vidya Balan has proved her versatility film after film. Her strong presence and performance in films like No One Killed Jessica and Kahaani have made her a sought after name in Bollywood.

Her next film, Bobby Jasoos revolves around a female character and she will be seen romancing young actor Ali Faizal. The film is directed by Samar Shaikh and co-produced by Dia Mirza and her beau Sahil Sangha.

Talking about her acting career so far, Vidya says that she "keeps on hunting for different roles" and that she never understood the difference between "conventional and unconventional films."

"I don't understand conventional and unconventional things (films). There are different kinds of people (in Bollywood) and some people have the guts to pull off different roles. I keep hunting for different roles," she said.

"Parineeta was an unconventional debut and it happened instinctively...I get bored easily and for me, an actor is someone who lives different people's life with different roles. With each film I get to do different films," she added.

National-award winning actress Vidya Balan says she has not been offered any film with the Khans in Bollywood yet. Vidya, who will be seen sharing the screen space with newbie actor Ali Fazal in detective thriller Bobby Jasoos, said she is not keen on doing it either as she doesn't see herself fitting into 'masala commercials'.

"I don't miss working with them. There has to be a script that has enough for me to do.. It has to be exciting for me. I have never looked for films where I can work with certain actors. I have never planned my career.. I have only responded to scripts that came my way. To be working with (known) actors or new actors, I don't plan my career that way. I have a different approach. And I am very happy with the kind of work I am doing," Vidya said.

"I have not really got offers (for films with Khans) .. not in the past seven years. I don't see myself fitting into those kind of films honestly," she added.

Meanwhile, gossip mills are abuzz that the biopic on legendary Carnatic singer M S Subbulakshmi, which Vidya, 36, will be doing, is in some legal trouble. "I have no information on that. In past one year it has been put on hold. So, I dont know what is the the status," she said.
