SRK’s the eternal romantic: Vidya Balan

By Hindustan Times

From being Lalita in Parineeta (2005) to playing Silk in The Dirty Picture (2011) and Vidya Bagchi in Kahaani (2012), actor Vidya Balan has surely come a long way.

The 34-year-old, who is on a high these days — both professionally and personally (she is dating UTV honcho Siddharth Roy Kapur) is enjoying her time away from arch lights before she begins shooting for her next film, Raj Kumar Gupta’s Ghanchakkar, opposite Emraan Hashmi, in August.

After doing a double role for Aliva’s ad campaign, Vidya, who was recently in the Capital as the company’s brand ambassador, got chatty about being compared to Hollywood actor Meryl Streep, her wish to play a double role on the big screen, and more.

Vidya speaks...

It is very encouraging and thrilling to be compared
