While the actress is being compared with other fellow leads in Bollywood, actress Vidya Balan marked with Khans in Bollywood. The versatile lady in lead has given best to the Indian Cinematic Industry is now believed to be similar to Mr. Perfectionist Aamir Khan. She is now being tagged as the female version of Aamir Khan in Bollywood.
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.’‘
