Actor Vidya Balan says she is a greedy actor and is very keen on good roles in Marathi cinema. The Paa actor is making a Marathi film debut in a small role in the forthcoming role in Ekk Albela.

In the film Ekk Albela, Vidya will be seen portraying the role of late actor Geeta Bali. Marathi actor Mangesh Desai will portray the role of late actor Bhagwan Dada.

“I have been offered few films but for some reasons things did not work out. I am doing a film in Malayalam it is a biopic on poetess Kamla Das,” said Vidya here at an event of Ekk Albela.

“I am a greedy actor. I am open to play a Maharashtrian role but I will have to work hard on the language. As I will not let anyone else dub for me,” she said.

The Paa actor, 38, hopes she gets all the good Marathi scripts.

Ekk Albela traces the journey of Bhagwan Dada’s film career as an actor and director and Vidya’s role will be credited as a special appearance.
