Vidya wants to work in more films with Emraan
Bangalore: Vidya Balan expressed her desire to act in more and more films with Emraan Hashmi, her co-star in 'Ghanchakkar'.
"It was exciting to work with Emraan and complete the film (Ghanchakkar) and I hope there will be people who want to cast us together in many films. I hope the film's director Rajkumar Gupta capitalizes on my on-screen chemistry with Emraan and makes another film with him," she told reporters at a promotion event of the film.
Vidya said she did not even expect to act with Emraan again so soon after 'The Dirty Picture'.
"Ghanchakkar is a new kind of film and we both play different roles. I had great time with Emraan while doing the film. He is a fantastic actor."
She said Emraan has changed altogether while playing the crazy character.
"He is talking, smiling and laughing a lot now because of the kind of film we have worked together in. It is a mad, mad (and) crazy film."
The Bollywood diva plays Neetu Athray aka Mrs Ghanchakkar who is described as a woman with a sweet demeanour with a firebrand Punjaban trapped inside.
Asked to pick between the roles Vidya played in 'The Dirty Picture' and 'Ghanchakkar', Emraan said both the characters needed her to shed inhibitions and grow as an artiste.
Vidya, however, looked great and did a great job in 'Dirty Picture', Emraan said, adding, the actress also played her character in 'Ghanchakkar' perfectly.
Reacting to Nepal-based writer Dhirendra Kumar sending legal notice to 'Ghanchakkar' producer alleging plagiarism, Rajkumar said it is "utter nonsense" and no truth in it.
"I think the industry needs to slap a case against those who claim that the story belongs to them. In fact, the story was written by Pervez Sheikh as early as 2008," he said.
'Ghanchakkar' is slated for release on June 28.
