First look: Vidya Balan is a wanted criminal in ‘Kahaani 2’

The first look of Vidya Balan in ‘Kahaani 2’ is out and the poster reveals the actress to be a fugitive criminal wanted for kidnapping and murder.

The poster has a deglamourized picture of Vidya in a blue sweater, along with her description – Name – Durga Rani Singh; Age – 36 years; Complexion – Fair; Height – 5’4”. On top of the picture is written, ‘Wanted for kidnapping & murder’.

Directed and co-produced by Sujoy Ghosh, ‘Kahaani 2’ is a sequel of 2012 critically acclaimed blockbuster ‘Kahaani’. Besides Vidya, the sequel also features Arjun Rampal, Jugal Hansraj and Bengali film actor Tota Roy Chowdhury.

The film went on floors in March this year and wrapped up by May. The film was originally slated to hit screens on November 25, but producer Jayantilal Gada of Pen India decided to postpone the release date to December, in order to avoid a clash with Gauri Shinde’s film ‘Dear Zindagi’.

It was recently announced that the Shah Rukh Khan and Alia Bhatt starrer will hit screens on November 25, after which Jayantilal Gada and Mahesh Bhatt (Alia’s father) decided not to release the two films together.

"Bhatt Sahab is associated with us for our leading TV shows 'Udann' and 'Naamkarann', but more importantly he and Alia are like family to us. There can never be any competition within families, hence, I have decided to release 'Kahaani 2- Durga Rani Singh' on December 2," Jayantilal Gada said in a statement.
