Remaking Mehboob Khan’s Oscar-nominated Mother India is an unachievable feat, says Vidya Balan and if someone dared attempt this, she wouldn’t be a part of this.
As a tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema, Vidya has donned Nargis’ look from the 1957 cult film Mother India and Meena Kumari’s from the 1962-classic Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam for Cineblitz’s special edition.
But the actress, who entered filmdom with the Parineeta remake, has no intention of working in a Mother India remake.
“I don’t think anybody would even dare to remake Mother India and if someone does then I will salute him, but I will not do it. It is unachievable, really,” Vidya 35, told reporters at the unveiling of the cover page of the magazine.
