Hyderabad: Vidya Balan joined the fainting club with her younger contemporaries when she passed out for a while, promoting her film ‘No One Killed Jessica’ in a multiplex in Hyderabad. And Rani Mukerji, her co-star played her guardian. The crew members along with Rani helped the talented actress recuperate.

Narrating the incident to a news daily, a source said, "Vidya has not had a break since the past five months. Her schedule has been extremely hectic for the past few weeks. She is sleeping for barely 2-3 hours a day. She definitely needs some rest. Last afternoon, we reached the multiplex where a promotional event for ‘No One Killed Jessica’. She told Rani and a couple of people next to her that she was not feeling well.”

Rani, with whom Vidya had a fall out with during the shooting of the film, turned an angel for the actress who was down and out.

"A chair was brought for her and she passed out for a couple of minutes. Rani told the crew members to get something sweet for her and water. She was given all these and she sat down for some time. Rani told her to take proper rest," the source added.

The source added, "Vidya has been shooting for Sujoy Ghosh`s untitled film since the last two months and the moment she got back, she has constantly been promoting ‘No One…’. She has not had a break in a long time and she is stressed and tired."

Vidya has been constantly shooting Sujoy Ghosh`s film. She is also doing an item song for Santosh Sivan`s film and to add on, she has a number of promotional events lined up for her film with Rani.

Considering the fact that actresses in Bollywood have a very short expiry date, Vidya seems to be taking her career a bit too seriously. She is over working herself as she knows there is little time left.

Are we right Vidya?
