Vidya Balan is accepting more challenging roles than the other Bollywood female stars. She has already accepted to play the lead role in the film Dirty Picture which is based on the life of Silk Smitha. She also played the role of Sabrina Lall, sister of slain Delhi model Jessica, in the film No One Killed Jessica. Both these films are based on real life incidents.
Now, Vidya will star in the film Ragini MMS which is being produced by Ekta Kapoor under her Balaji Films banner. This film is based on the infamous MMS scandal in a Delhi school.
Initially, Kangna Ranaut had been approached to play the role and when she heard about the explicit content it will have due to the subject of the story, she rejected the offer. But Vidya is bold enough to play the role of Ragini.
