Vidya Balan to play a cop in Sujoy Ghosh’s production ‘Te3n’


Bollywood actress Vidya Balan will don the khaki for the first time in her ‘Kahaani’ director Sujoy Ghosh’s production ‘Te3n’. The National Award winning actress makes a special appearance in the film alongside Amitabh Bachchan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui..

Revealing about her role, Vidya said, "I am playing a cop, it's a special appearance. I was excited because it's a fabulous script... it's a chance to shoot again in Kolkata, with Bachchan sahab, Nawazuddin and Sujoy."

The 37-year-old actress was speaking at the launch of author Piyush Jha's latest crime-fiction novel ‘Raakshas’ on Friday, December 11.

Being directed by Ribhu Dasgupta, ‘Te3n’ brings together once again brings together Vidya, Nawazuddin and Sujoy, who is the creative producer of the film, after their 2012 thriller ‘Kahaani’. However, Vidya said despite the same team, ‘Te3n’ is a different film.

"It is not 'Kahaani'. The story is different. I am shooting in Kolkata and most of the people in the team are the same who worked in 'Kahaani'. I am enjoying it. Working with Sujoy is always fun, even with Bachchan sahab and Nawazuddin."

Asked if the city is lucky for her, the ‘Ishqiya’ actress said, "That I don't know... If the film is good it will become lucky anyway. We are just doing our work and enjoying it."

‘Te3n’ went on floors in the West Bengal capital last month and Amitabh Bachchan had also shared some pictures of him and Nawazuddin riding a bike around the city, on his social media accounts.

Vidya and Amitabh Bachchan had earlier worked together in the 2009 film ‘Paa’ in which she played the mother of Big B whose character suffered from progeria.

Amitabh had also worked with director Ribhu in the latter’s television series ‘Yudh’.
