Kahaani actress Vidya Balan sounds little sad when she is talking about her Lootera lead character which was offered to her but later opted out.
“In 2007 ‘Lootera’ came to me, John (Abraham) and I were supposed to do it. Then, we decided not to make it. Later, Vikramaditya Motwane went on to do ‘Udaan’, and we all went on to do other films. Then I heard that Ranveer and Sonakshi are doing it. I watched the film and loved Sonakshi in it. There was one song ‘Monta Re’, and you know my affection towards anything Bengali. So I felt, if I had done the movie, this song would have been filmed on me. The film was great with them; I only wish that I had that one song.”
Fans are divided on social media on the issue of John and Vidya playing the lead roles in Lootera.
One says “I love Vidya but no, Lootera was a magical film because of Ranveer and Sonakshi. If John and Vidya were in it, it would have just been an ordinary movie”.
“Thank you both for not doing it. Not that I don’t like your acting Vidya but You two wouldn’t have matched the chemistry like Ranveer-Sonakshi did by bringing a script to life”, another fan said.
Another fan said: “Thank god they didn’t do it… John would have ruined it with his wooden-like acting.”
She has been in the industry for almost 11 years now and the actress says that her journey has been full of ups and down. Vidya Balan will promote Kahaani 2 on Colors’ Udaan. – CINEWS
