Actress Vidya Balan who has made it big in Bollywood with her performance-oriented roles has reportedly ‘refused’ to pair up opposite ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram in one of his forthcoming films. Infact Vidya wasn’t even ready to listen to the storyline that the director was ready to narrate to her.
Vidya’s performance was well received in many Hindi films including Mani Ratnam’s Guru, Parineeta, Paa and Ishqiya and has won many awards for best acting.
Many Kollywood directors have been trying for the past few years to bring Vidya to act in Tamil films but Vidya hasn’t relented so far. Aascar Ravichandran who dropped her from ‘Manasellam’ was keen to sign her opposite Kamal Hassan for Dasavathaaram but she rejected the offer.
Recently Director Vijay, who has made it big with his successful period drama ‘Madarasapattinam’ is said to have approached Vidya to pair up opposite Vikram in a new film he had in mind starring Vikram in the lead. But Vidya simply rejected the offer saying she doesn’t want to star in Tamil films.
To his surprise, Vidya wasn’t even ready to listen to the storyline that Vijay was ready to narrate to her. “I have absolutely no intention of starring in Tamil films. That’s why I didn’t even listen to the story. ” Vidya reportedly told Vijay.
