When asked about her thoughts on the comparison and the ‘female Aamir Khan’ tag at the trailer launch of her upcoming film, ‘Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh’, the actress was all praises for Mr. Perfectionist. She clarified, “Jis din meri films bhi unki filmo ke tarah business karegi (laughs), phir main manungi that I am female Aamir. It’s a huge compliment when someone says that. But in my opinion, it’s far from true. He has been working for many years now and knows a lot about filmmaking and marketing. In fact, he is almost a marketing guru. I have never worked with him, but I have a long way to go.” Her quote prompted one to ask why she hasn’t teamed up with the Khans yet.
When Vidya was interview recently about why he choose no-make up for Kahaani 2 she said, Sujoy (Ghosh, the director) wanted my look to be realistic and my make-up artist Shreyas specializes in the no make-up look. To protect the skin, we have applied a little bit of make-up — we were shooting in Kalimpong and Sujoy wanted certain dryness to the skin due to the cold weather there. So we have given a slight texture to the skin. That’s how Sujoy saw Durga Rani Singh and that is the reason for the no make-up look.
She explained, “Firstly, I didn’t have the opportunity and I don’t put my hands on anyone’s shoulder to stand tall. Not that anyone else is doing it. Please don’t mistake me, but I like to stand on my own feet. I feel very proud about that.”
When asked why she is not teaming up with any superstar as co-star she said, ”It’s maybe because I have not had the opportunity. And I really like to stand on my own feet. I don’t put my hand on anyone else’s shoulder to stand tall … not that anyone else is doing it; please don’t mistake me. What I am saying is that I am still standing on my own two feet, and I feel very proud about that.’‘
