Vidya to play housewife in Ghanchakkar

After playing powerful characters in films like No One Killed Jessica, The Dirty Picture and Kahaani, Vidya Balan is now all set to play a simple housewife in her next film Ghanchakkar.

Ghanchakkar re-unites Vidya Balan with her The Dirty Picture‘co-star Emraan Hashmi. The film produced by UTV is directed by Rajkumar Gupta.

Rajkumar Gupta plans to shoot portions of the film guerilla style with hidden cameras on the streets of Mumbai

If THAT doesn’t get you excited, I mean, the prospect of seeing Vidya paired once again with Emraan Hashmi, with whom she shared great chemistry, apparently, on the set of The Dirty Picture, the name of the director gets ME excited!

Rajkumar Gupta  directed Aamir in 2008, a fast-paced thriller with Rajeev Khandelwal. That was a hellofa ride! the precursor of Kahaani… with a great performance by Khandelwal. I can’t wait to see what Gupta is going to do with a comedy (at least that’s what I read somewhere)  and such a wonderful actress like Vidya Balan. Again she is going to surprise us with a different take on her.  A housewife.  I appreciate Vidya’s never-ending search for novel roles. Plus, guerilla style, hidden cams, streets of Mumbai… I love the combo already.

If you haven’t seen Aamir or Kahaani, watch them. You won’t regret it.



India’s film industry is on the roll! Innovative scripts, new directors, new concepts. Bollywood is spiraling through transformations on high speed and deserves more credit abroad than it gets. I only hope it doesn’t lose its cherished characteristics on this fast ride.
