Vidya Balan who was last seen in Tumhari Sulu has never shied away from picking up complex and challenging roles. And the actress has even effortlessly nailed all the characters and given us some memorable characters too.
Vidya Balan is all set to add one more character to her list. The actress has confirmed that she will be playing NTR’s wife – Basavatarakam, in a film based on the late actor’s life.
The film on the Telugu superstar-turned-politician is one of the most awaited biopics and will also mark Vidya’s debut in 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.”
Good luck for your Telugu debut Vidya!
