New Delhi: Vidya Balan has been going all out and promoting her new film ‘Kahaani’ in her pregnant avatar. The actress has been spotted looking for her on-screen husband Arnab Bagchi at railway stations, bus stands and even BEST buses.
While the world knows that Vidya plays the hapless wife of a missing man, no one knows who is playing Arnab Bagchi. Well now the cat is out of the bag.
A tabloid has revealed that former TV actor Indraneil Sengupta is playing Arnab Bagchi’s role in Sujoy Ghosh’s thriller. After a brief stint on television, Sengupta shifted base to Kolkata and started working in Bengali films and is touted as the next big thing there.
Perhaps as a publicity stunt, Vidya is seen roaming around with a sketch of Arnab Bagchi. And the identity of the actor has been kept under wraps all this while to keep the mystery element alive.
When the tabloid asked Indraneil to confirm the news, the actor did not confirm or deny the news. He simply said, "I have played a part in the film. I am not telling you what it is, but it is a suspense thriller and I hope people will watch the film to find out more."
