Leave it to Vidya Balan to pick the most unconventional roles. After playing Jessica Lal’s heroic sister in No One Killed Jessica, Vidya sports a baby bump through most of her next film, Kahaani.
Check out the first look of Vidya Balan in ‘Kahaani’. Looking at the statues surrounding Vidya, it’s evident that her character is in West Bengal around the time of Durga Pooja.
Director Sujoy Ghosh (Aladin, Jhankaar Beats) has said that Vidya Balan will be playing the character of a woman who is 6 months pregnant. In the film, Vidya plays a married woman whose husband leaves London and comes to India for a job. After he goes missing, Vidya goes to Kolkata to search for her husband even though she is pregnant.
Vidya Balan confessed that playing an expectant mother didn’t take any of the fun away. Whenever anyone on the sets smoked, she could ask them to stop smoking by citing that she was pregnant! After Heyy Baby and Paa, this is Vidya’s third film as a yummy mummy.
