I always wanted to do Comedy: Vidya Balan

MUMBAI: Its Vidya all the way! With successive hits and boosting the girl power as the 100th year of the Indian Cinema unfolds, Vidya Balan has come a long way from her?Susheel? (sophisticated) avatar in Parineeta (2005) to her spell bounding performances in The Dirty Picture, Kahaaniand Ishqiya.

Her latest Ghanchakkar (Crazy) is a suspense comedy that hits the silver screens come 28 June and is much awaited as it?s the first film post her marriage to the honcho Siddharth Roy Kapur.

Balan stars as the loud-mouthed wife of a bank robber (Emraan Hashmi) who loses his memory after a heist. As per her latest interview with Reuters on Ghanchakkar, Balan speaks about her breaking the stereotypes and gladly accepting her sexuality. On being asked about her role in the movie, Balan affirms her role being a loud middle-class housewife with a stereotype middle-class woman persona.

Commenting about Raj?s direction, she reveals that, "He (director Raj Kumar Gupta) finds humour in situations that are so mundane and everyday. Thrillers are his genre but I knew he?d do humour well too. When he came to me with this, I always wanted to do comedy and this was a breath of fresh air."

The 35-year-old actress has paved her way up through taking on versatile roles over the years. The actress? strong presence was appreciated in her bold The Dirty Picture (2011), the thriller flick Kahaani (2012) and also her bad-ass role in Ishqiya (2010), all winning her numerous Best Actress Awards consecutively.

Apart from her movies? box office collections soaring high, her leads have been critically acclaimed as well. About her next screen bet Ghanchakkar (Crazy), which is a suspense comedy that opens in cinemas on 28 June.

Spreading her charm beyond the borders, Balan has elevated herself to a spot in an elite nine- member Cannes festival jury headed by filmmaker Steven Spielberg. The charming actress sure knows how to achieve milestones in her career.
