Vidya Balan spills secret about her ‘kiss’ with Rani Mukerji!
Mumbai: ‘Ishqiya’ seductress Vidya Balan have managed to keep controversies at bay, but recently when her ‘kiss’ photos with Rani Mukerji were splashed in tabloids, she couldn’t hide her shyness.
During the promotion of ‘No One Killed Jessica’, when Rani Mukerji ‘mock-kissed’ Vidya Balan, heads turned.
Talking about the incident to a daily, Vidya said, “Rani and I were fed up of answering questions about whether we had catfights. The truth is that we didn’t have any. Someone asked us if we had kissed and made up, so in the heat of the moment we did a mock kiss. I don’t need that kind of publicity, and neither does the film.”
Vidya plays model Jessica Lal’s younger sister Sabrina in ‘No One Killed Jessica’. In the film, she teams up with Rani, who essays the role of a reporter, to fight for her sister Jessica’s justice.
Balan was pleased about the fact that the Jessica case verdict came out while the film was still being shot. According to her, hearing that news was reassuring.
Vidya maintains that even though the film borrows a lot from the actual case, it is not a docudrama. Vidya said, “It’s a dramatised version of the actual event.”
In fact, she met two people who called the ‘No One Killed Jessica’ thappad (slap) help line to offer solutions to their problems.
“We had an astounding response. Five thousand people called up on an average every day — to complain about eve teasing, harassment and other issues,” she said.
