Talking to the Times of India, actress Vidya Balan has opened up on her shock over MF Hussain's demise.

Vidya Balan was very much impressed with the woman's role and she regrets not getting the opportunity to play the role. “He wanted to narrate Comedy. Com, the film he wanted to make with me. It"s about a woman, who is very silent, but very sexy. I was busy and when I was free, he got busy. I regret not having the time now," the TOI quotes her as saying.
The B-Town star says, “The last time we spoke was five months ago, and he"d said I must come to Dubai, and he"ll narrate the script and also paint me. I"ve actually left a wall in my new house blank for the painting. He said he"ll begin shooting in 2011, and I must be ready, but it got shifted to 2012 as he had projects to finish."
