Vidya Balan steps into Mallika's shoes!


By Hindustan Times
Vidya Balan is all set to pair up opposite Farhan Akhtar in the sequel of Mallika Sherawat, Rahul Bose starrer Pyaar Ke Side Effects. The story of the sequel titled Shaadi Ke Side Effects begins where that of Pyaar Ke Side Effects ends. The lead pair Mallika Sherawat and Rahul Bose will not be a part of the film.
"SKSE begins where PKSE ends. Except the lead pair, everyone including director Saket Choudhary and music director Pritam remain." Producer Pritish Nandy tells a daily.
"SKSE is a funny, clever, wild film full of the fascinating ways love works before and after marriage. PKSE had four songs that became very popular, and the story had very strong connectivity with the audience, so we decided to make a sequel. Unfortunately, it a took a while in writing. Saket is a brilliant director but a slow writer!" Adds Nandy.
Vidya Balan had earlier confirmed that she was approached for the film.
It was also reported that Vidya apparently demanded more money than Farhan did. Ask her about this and she says, “I don’t know where the talk of money is coming from. We haven’t reached that stage yet. And besides, I have never spoken about my remuneration in public. And I will continue not to do so.”
