New Delhi: Bollywood's one of the most versatile actresses Vidya Balan is ready to entice the viewers with her power-packed performance in Sujoy Ghosh's 'Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh'.
The trailer and songs of the film have created an extremely intriguing feel about this upcoming thriller. Vidya is known for playing central female characters which leave a lasting impression on the audiences' minds.
"I am the centre of universe for me and I am a woman. So women-centric films veer towards me and I veer towards them. I am very happy with the roles I have been getting but it was never a conscious decision," PTI quoted Vidya as telling reporters.
However, the filmmaker clarified that the upcoming venture 'Kahaani 2' is not a sequel of the 2012 superhit by the same name 'Kahaani' rather it is just the second instalment the film.
"It is not a sequel. We are trying to take the genre of 'Kahaani' forward. It is a different story. For us a good story and good storytelling is 'Kahaani'," director Sujoy Ghosh said.
Besides Vidya, Arjun Rampal too will be seen in the film where he plays a cop. The actor said her character in the film looks simple but is complicated. "I like such characters who are unpredictable and unreadable," Vidya said.
On how they planned the second instalment of 'Kahaani' Vidya said she had thought of another film with Sujoy Ghosh but it didn't work out.
"Initially, I said why should we make 'Kahaani 2' but then later on when this script came I realised if there was a second film it had to be this one. I was completely convinced that this is the story we want to make a film on," 'The Dirty Picture' actress said.
