Vidya Balan says no to Rajkumar Hirani
Vidya Balan sizzled in director Rajkumar Hirani’s film “Lage Raho Munnabhai”. But she recently said no to a cameo in the director’s present film “Three Idiots” which has Aamir Khan, Madhavan and Kareena Kapoor playing the lead roles.
Vidya Balan is an avid bookworm and speaks many languages. It is said that it was she who brought Chetan Bhagat’s novel “Five Point Someone” to the notice of Hirani who decided to make the book into a film.
However, Vidya is miffed when female lead role is given to Kareena and not to her. And, therefore, she refused to play a secondary role in the film.
Hirani has accused Vidya of leaking the details of the cameo to the press. But, Bollywood watchers say that any one who reads Chetan Bhagat’s novel “Five Point Someone” would know all about the characters.
With serious differences cropping up between Vidya and Hirani, her role in the next edition of “Munnabhai” is rather doubtful.
