Vidya Balan is well-known for immersing herself in the characters she opts to play. For her next release, ‘Ghanchakkar,’ she has gone a step further than usual. She has allowed a few of her personal items to be used in the film.
The actress plays a Punjabi housewife and she wanted the portrayal to be as realistic as possible. She had a lengthy discussion with director Rajkumar Gupta and they eventually agreed that her part would look more authentic if she used some of her personal belongings to decorate her home in the film. Thus, Vidya has lent some of her paintings, artefacts, decorative items, and even her own bed sheets to be used in the movie.
The movie, which is being produced by UTV Motion Pictures, will see Vidya paired with her ‘The Dirty Picture’ (2011) co-star Emraan Hashmi. Apparently, Emraan plays a conman and Vidya plays his loud, north Indian wife in the film. She will also be seen sporting a completely new look.
