Vidya Balan, who was last seen in Tumhari Sulu is all in for picking up some complex and challenging roles. Vidya is all set to add one more character to her list of quirky roles. Recently, the actress has confirmed that she will be playing the role of NTR’s wife – Basavatarakam, in a film based on the late actor’s life.
The film, yet to be titled, is based on the personal and professional life of a Telugu superstar-turned-politician NTR, and this is one of the most awaited biopics. In fact, this project will also mark Vidya’s debut in the Telugu film industry.
Speaking about her character in the film, Vidya said:
“People know Basavatarakam as NTR’s wife, but she was not really a public figure. People knew of her but they didn’t know her. That was interesting for me as an actor. There has not been much material in the public domain about her. That’s basically the preparation I am doing…this will be my first Telugu film so it’s exciting.”
Aren’t you guys excited to watch Vidya rule the silver screen again?
