Unconventional in the time when everyone is trying to fit into a particular image is none other than Vidya Balan. In spite of instant success with her very first movie, Parineeta, there were early hiccups but the lady persevered. She has been in Bollywood for over a decade now and she continues to surprise her with the choice of her roles, which continuously make her step out of her comfort zone. Not many actresses would gain and lose weight for a role nor would they readily go de-glam but Vidya Balan seems to have no such qualms as she takes on every challenge presented to her and gives her best.
In recent times, her movies might not have been doing well but her performance and dedication remains unchanged. On her birthday here are five roles we would love for her to try.
We loved her donning all those disguises in Bobby Jasoos and it would be fun to see her as the formidable magical nanny.
Breakfast at Tiffany's is a classic and we would love to see it remade desi-style with Vidya as the protagonist. Obviously, she won't look like an 18-year-old but they can tweak the storyline to suit her.
The inspiring biopic moved us and Vidya Balan has proved time and again that she excels at playing a woman of substance.
Bonnie and Clyde are perhaps the most iconic thieving duo and we would love to see Vidya Balan as one half of it. She impressed us with her role in the Kahaani series and this is something she should not have any trouble with.
Bollywood does not produce too many musicals and this dark and gritty Broadway adaptation might just be the thing we are missing. After her performance in Ishqiya and The Dirty Picture, Vidya Balan should be the perfect choice for the titular role.
