Besides acting, actress Vidya Balan has also helped producer-cum-director Sujoy Ghosh in making her upcoming movie Kahaani, which is slated to release this weekend. Impressed Sujoy has planned to write a script for the Bollywood star. But Vidya says that she is content with her acting career and has no wish to venture into direction.
Vidya Balan, who is busy promoting the movie Kahaani, says that she can never direct a film. Talking to PTI at a publicity activity in Kolkata, the actress said, “Sujoy has been saying this for a long time. He has even told me that he will soon write a script for me. But I don't think I can ever direct a film.”
The 34-year-old Malayali actress first impressed everyone with her Bollywood debut as a coy Bengali belle in Pradeep Sarkar directed Parineeta in 2005. Later, Vidya Balan earned rave reviews for her strong performances in movies like Bhool Bhulaiyaa, No One Killed Jessica, Ishqiya and The Dirty Picture.
The actress will be seen as an NRI woman searching for her lost husband in Kolkata in Sujoy Ghosh's Kahaani. Talking about direction, Vidya Balan further says, “I am getting meaty parts in films, then why should I settle for bones. Acting is fine, but I don't think I will ever turn into direction.”
