Vidya Balan may soon make her television comeback with an Oprah Winfrey-style talk show.
Mumbai Mirror reported on Wednesday that Viday Balan is in talks with a Hollywood studio to host a chat show for a US television network. Vidya, who made a mark for herself with powerful roles in films such as Paa (2009) and Kahaani (2012), is yet to give a final confirmation to the show producers.
Earlier, Vidya Balan had told Hindustan Times, "The 37-year-old says that she may consider TV only if the content matches the level of writing in ­international shows: “When the writing gets to a level of Mad Men or Six Feet Under, then I will be more than happy to do TV shows."
Vidya added that she wouldn’t mind doing a talk show: “There are two ideas I was approached for sometime back, but I’ve asked the makers to develop the concept first. If I like the final concept, then maybe I will go ahead.
Vidya said she had been offered Nach Baliye 7, which she refused, but added that she "will never rule out television", the tabloid reported.
In another interview, Vidya had said, " "When the writing gets to a level of Mad Men or Six Feet Under, then I will be more than happy to do television shows. I don’t want to be part of just another reality or fiction show that does not interest me."
Hindustan Times could not verify this report.
