Lot to learn from Farhan: Vidya Balan

By Hindustan Times

Actress Vidya Balan, who has lost weight for her new film Shaadi Ke Side Effects, says it is a different learning experience to share the frame with someone as multi-talented as Farhan Akhtar, who is a writer, actor, director and producer. "I am enjoying working with him. It's the first time I am working with an actor who is also a writer and director. There is a lot to learn from him and I love the fact that he is a Capricorn," Vidya said here.

The actress had gained around 10 to 12 kg for her roles in The Dirty Picture and yet-to-be-released Ghanchakkar. But for Shaadi Ke Side Effects, a sequel to the 2006 film Pyaar Ke Side Effects, Vidya had to reduce the excess pounds.

"I had gained weight for the The Dirty Picture and for Ghanchakkar I had to retain that weight, so I did it. Now Shaadi Ke Side Effects is a different film and that character requires me to have different type of a body, so I have tried to do that."

Directed by Saked Chaudhry, Shaadi Ke Side Effects is being co-produced by Pritish Nandy and Ekta Kapoor.
