Vidhu Vinod Chopra wants Aishwarya in â€˜Parineetaâ€™
If you think Vidya Balan’s fame to stardom is a cakewalk then you are totally mistaken. ‘The Dirty Picture’ girl had to give 50-60 teats to grab her debut Bollywood project. Her struggle became more troublesome when producer Vidhu Vinod Chopra has some other face in his mind. Vidya Balan is the choice of director Pradeep Sarkar not Vidhu Vinod Chopra. Vidhu had Aishwarya in his mind.
But Pradeep suggested Vidya’s name to Vidhu and "When we thought of Parineeta, I immediately thought of a face like Aishwarya Rai. The character of the girl is like two men fall in love with her...so the heroine has to be bigger. But Pradeep Sarkar (director) told me about her (Vidya) I was like let me see what she can do," Chopra told reporters recently.
"But then we tested and tried her (Vidya Balan) and she cleared it," Chopra added.
Vidya in the role of ‘Parineeta’ was rocking. She hit sixer in the first shot. She was nominated for two categories. At the Filmfare Awards, Best Female Debut catergory and Best actress category. Vidya Balan won the Best Female Debut award.
Two back to back hit has made Vidya, the most sought after actress of Bollywood. Her versatility is unmatchable. Next, she will be seen in Vidhu Vinod Chopra’s production ‘Ferrari Ki Sawaari’.
