Vidya Balan: There Was A Time When I Got Replaced In A Dozen South Films
Vidya Balan, in an exclusive interview with mid-day. com, spoke about her upcoming film Shakuntala Devi, getting into the skin of the character, and the struggles she faced in the initial stage of her career!

Vidya Balan is gearing up for her next film, Shakuntala Devi, a drama that traces the journey of the mathematician who also handled motherhood with equal aplomb at home. Balan spoke about the efforts she had to put in to replicate her nuances and how she was hurt with the comments from the people she thought were her friends.

The first question was about her ability to transform into the characters she essays on the screen. What is exactly her trick? She talked about her latest character Shakuntala Devi and said, “Shakuntala Devi is so multi-faceted that I had to do a lot of research on her. I saw her videos, read a lot about her, heard tapes of the interviews that Anu Menon, our writer and director, did with her daughter and son-in-law. And that’s how I began to get a sense of who this person was.”
