Mumbai: Actress Vidya Balan has finished almost 80 per cent of the shooting of her next film ‘Ghanchakkar’, and the movie`s director, Rajkumar Gupta, can only sing praises for her.

Gupta earlier directed Vidya in ‘No One Killed Jessica’.

"It`s a pleasure to work with Vidya again. Vidya is one of the best actresses we have. In `Ghanchakkar`, Vidya plays a character that she has not explored before. She is a brilliant actress and a wonderful human being. She simplifies everybody`s job," Gupta said.

‘Ghanchakkar’ is a comedy movie, featuring Emraan Hashmi opposite Vidya. Emraan plays an ex-conman.

Giving out a few details of the movie, Gupta said: "Vidya plays a housewife in the film. She is one actress who can pull off any role. `Ghanchakkar` is a quirky comedy. We have finished 80 per cent of the shooting. We have been shooting in Mumbai and a major portion of it was shot in Chembur."

The movie is slated to release June 21, 2013. Gupta says viewers must watch out the film for Emraan and Vidya`s chemistry.

"I only visualised Vidya and Emraan for this film ever since we started scripting. It`s a very unusual pairing and both of them are doing a fabulous job. Their chemistry is looking awesome on screen," said Gupta.

The movie is Gupta`s third film in a row with UTV Motion Pictures after ‘Aamir’ and ‘No One Killed Jessica’. The film has music by composer Amit Trivedi, with lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
