Mumbai, Jan. 25 -- Vidya Balan has been shooting the patchwork scenes of her next release opposite Emraan Hashmi. The actor took a break from work recently to go on a holiday with her husband, Siddharth Roy Kapur, in Los Angeles (LA), USA.

And we have come to know that she carried four film scripts along with her, two of them being biopics. Apparently, one is on late Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto and another on the late actor Suchitra Sen.

Vidya is taking time to give her approval to any of the offers. "Apart from the biopics, the other two scripts that she read during her stay in LA were a rom-com and a romantic film. Vidya is keen to work on the biopic of Suchitra Sen after finishing her current project," says a source close to the actor.

Apparently, she will make an announcement next month. "She is keen to play Sen on-screen. She will communicate her acceptance to the makers of the biopic in a month. She wants to start shooting for the film in the first quarter of this year," adds the source.

Although Vidya remained unavailable for a comment, her spokesperson has confirmed that she has been reading scripts of biopics.
