Vidya Balan is known for taking up interesting characters when it comes to her choice of films. After playing a radio jockey in Rajkumar Hirani's Lage Raho Munnabhai, the actress is all geared up to go behind the mic once again, but this time there's a small twist.
She has bagged ad film-maker Suresh Triveni's directorial debut Tumhari Sulu which has her essaying the role of Sulochana, fondly called as Sulu. Her character in the film, Sulu lands herself an unexpected job of a beautiful, fun and feisty RJ, who anchors a late-night show, known for its voyeuristic quality and semi-adult shenanigans.
Talking about her role in the film, Vidya was quoted saying, "Sulu is like that nimbu... you add nimbu for taste or then add it to balance taste; zesty & versatile! I think she'll unleash my naughty side."
Director Suresh Triveni was quoted saying, "Tumhari Sulu has been handcrafted for Vidya and to have her as a lead in my first feature is an honour. I look forward to seeing the story come alive as I have lived with it for almost a year now. I am delighted to have found great producers, Ellipsis and T-Series, for this incredible journey."
On the other hand, Bhushan Kumar added, "Today the audience is evolved and wants to see real and relatable cinema. Tumhari Sulu is a lovely heart-warming story tailor made for Vidya and we are proud to produce it with Ellipsis."
Tumhari Sulu will go on floors in April. Meanwhile, Vidya's next release Kahaani 2 will be hitting the big screens this Friday.
