    When asked about who could step into her character Pooja's shoes, she replied, "Vidya's a fine actor and has made some brave, amazing choices. Look at her career and you will be stunned with the varied roles she has done. Personally, I love and adore her."

    If Arth Is Remade Then Why No One Else But Only Vidya Is Perfect For The Film

    Azmi explained. "She has a beautiful voice. Also, among all her contemporaries, her diction is the most flawless. Vidya has the ability to shift herself down to the barest emotion. She can sacrifice her vanity for a part and look great, as an actor.

    The role in Arth needs a certain amount of strength and vulnerability at the same time and Vidya can pull it off easily. I have always been fond of her work and if Arth is remade, there's no one better to do my part."

    The Tumhari Sulu actress was overjoyed and said, "That's such a huge compliment. Arth is one of those films which is like Bible to me. Shabanaji in Arth had the most profound influence on me. I used to drive (Mahesh) Bhatt saab mad talking about little things from the film.

    Now that I know Shabanaji well, there are things that I tell her and she has this expression thinking, ‘Oh, my God, how passionately does this girl talk about the film!' Recently, at the MAMI mela, when someone asked me about my favourite characters, I mentioned Pooja from Arth as one of them because of the way the character had been written, as well as the way Shabanaji performed it."

    But, She Would Dare Not Touch Arth!

    But Vidya has her own reservations about starring in a remake of this flick. She said, "This compliment coming from her is humbling. But I would dare not touch Arth. Those are classics which should be left untouched."

    Well, what do you folks have to say about this?
