Vidya greedy to work with Hrithik, SRK
AFTER giving solo blockbusters The Dirty Picture and Kahaani, Vidya Balan has drawn up a wish list of male co-stars. She wants to work with actors like Abhishek Bachchan, Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan and Prosenjit Chatterjee.
“I would like to work with those who I have already worked with and those who I haven’t. I would love to pair up with Abhishek (with whom she shared the screen space in Paa)..
It’s been long. I am very greedy to work with good actors and directors,” she said at the release of Kahaani’s DVD.
Kahaani, a thriller directed by Sujoy Ghosh, is about a pregnant woman’s difficult journey to find her husband’s killer.
The actress said she would like to work with Hrithik because she hasn’t worked with him.
Talking about Bengali superstar Prosenjit, she said, “We have been wanting to work together for a long time. Every year there has been talks about a Bengali film but we have not been able to work out the dates. So this year, Sujoy has said he will make a film with us. We are on a lookout for a good script. If everything falls in place, we will make it work.” Vidya said she would love to team up with Shah Rukh in a romantic flick. “I think I grew up watching all his films where he plays the ultimate romantic hero. When you think of romance you think of Rajesh Khanna and Shah Rukh Khan. These are the names that come to my mind when someone talks of a romantic flick.
“Every woman wants a Raj (SRK’s character in Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge).
That’s why I have always wanted to work with him.
Whenever we work together, I would like it to be a story based on relationships,” she said.
When asked if The Dirty Picture is re-made in Bengali with item girl Rakhi Sawant, how will the latter fare, Vidya replied, “I have seen Rakhi a lot, so I think she is a lot of fun.
I am waiting to see what she does in the film.”
