Vidya BalanJaipur (UNI): Graceful, sensuous and currently one of hottest Bollywood actresses, Vidya Balan is ready for bold and daring roles and has not drawn any limits for herself. In the city to unveil a studio of a private FM channel here yesterday, perky Vidya quipped ''I am ready to experiment with all kinds of roles. And if the role demands, I have no inhibitions to shed a few clothes although I am clothed in all of my upcoming films. About the limit of the daring role, I really haven't given a thought to it.'' Urging the crowds gathered to watch her upcoming flick, Munna Bhai Lage Raho, which is a sequel to the blockbuster Sanjay Dutt starrer Munna Bhai MBBS, she said she is eagerly awaiting the release of her upcoming film.

Vidya, however, said she is not making any consicious effort to change her image after her now famous portrayal in the classic 'Parineeta'. She said: ''I want to play different characters which gives me scope to perform and to realise my potential. I play a radio jockey in Munna Bhai Lage Raho which is vastly different from the character Lolita in Parineeta.'' On asking her about being choosy and selective about roles, Vidya said ''I did not sign any new film till Parineeta was released. But now you will be bombarded with a number of my releases starting with Munna Bhai Laage Raho, Eklavya and Mani Ratnam's Guru.'' Vidya, whose spontaniety and acting has impressed Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan, who said ''she is one actress to watch out for,'' is humbled by the all compliments coming her way. She said with a glint in her eye: ''I am extremely humbled by the reactions of Mr Bachchan and Karan Johar. Accepting the kudos with all humility, I hope it only translates into more films,'' she added.
