Film maker Sudhir Mishra has finalized Vidya Balan for his forthcoming film Mehrinissa. She plays two characters in two different time zones, one as a 20 year old and the other as a 52 year old.
The older part of the character of Vidya is said to be modeled on yesteryears actors Wahida Rahman. Special makeup and prosthetics will be employed to make Vidya look convincing in the older character.
Amitabh Bachchan and Rishi Kapoor are part of the cast of the film which is being produced by Nikhil Advani under the banner of DAR Motion Pictures.
Mehrinissa will go on floors after Vidya completes Rajkumar Gupta’s Ghanchakkar being produced by UTV Motion Pictures.
