Vidya Balan wants to act in Bengali film opposite Prosenjit

Kolkata: Bollywood actress Vidya Balan, who considers Kolkata as her second home, is now thinking of acting in a Bengali film with Tollywood superstar Prosenjit.

"Now that Ritu da (director Rituparno Ghosh) is no more, we keep telling each other that we must work together. We are looking for a script which suits us both. I hope we will find it soon," Balan told reporters here.

In town to promote her film `Bobby Jasoos`, Balan said she and Prosenjit always keep in touch with each other.

"I make it a point to meet him whenever I am in Kolkata and he gives me DVDs of his films. He had encouraged me a lot when I was new in the industry," she said.
The actress has always maintained that Kolkata is her second home and many of her films like `Parineeta` and `Kahaani` have been shot in the city.

In her next film which releases July 4, she plays a detective.

When asked which case would she like to solve in Kolkata as a detective, she hinted at the multi crore Saradha chit fund scam.

"There are many scams here. I want to bust that," Balan said.
