Never realised I was away for 15 months: Vidya Balan

Last Updated: Thursday, June 27, 2013 - 12:38

New Delhi: Vidya Balan was last seen in ‘Kahaani’ which released in March last year but the actress says she did not realise she was away from the big screen for 15-long months.

The 35-year-old actress is, however, hoping to make a triumphant return to the big screen with her upcoming film ‘Ghanchakkar’.

"There was a 15-month break after `Kahaani` and I did not realise that I was away for so long. But it was a not a break, I was doing things. After `Kahaani`, I started preparing for `Ghanchakkar`, I got married. I just took a month-long break. Then I began `Shaadi Ke Side Effects`. Then the Cannes Festival. I have been working these past 15 months," Vidya said.

In Rajkumar Gupta directed `Ghanchakkar`, Vidya has been paired opposite Emraan Hashmi, who plays her husband. The comedy thriller has been produced by Ronnie Screwvala and Vidya`s husband Siddharth Roy Kapur. The film will hit theatres tomorrow.

"Playing a loud, Punjabi housewife was not at all easy. I had to stop working out so that I would look the part. It was difficult having to go through the same `Dirty Picture` phase again. But I saw the film few days ago and I am really happy with it," Vidya said.

The National award-winning actress has been on a promotional spree. Vidya has not just been city hopping but has appeared in many reality TV shows and dailies.

"I enjoy meeting people. Hence I enjoy promotions. Earlier, it used to be a little difficult as I was shy. But I enjoy it more now. I have fun," she said.

But the actress, who was part of hit TV show `Hum Paanch`, says she is not ready to return to the small screen anytime soon.

"I cannot do full-fledged TV. It is too much of hard work. It is fine as long as it is promotions," Vidya said.

Vidya still has 10-days shoot left for ‘Shaadi Ke Side Effects’, which will see her opposite Farhan Akhtar.

When asked if she has signed Mohit Suri`s next, she said, "I have not signed it yet. I am considering it."
