Vidyabalan is a very talented artist. Most of her films have been very successful at the box office. Many people do not know that she is a Malayalam lady by birth. But she is multilingual. She can speak Malayalam, her mother tongue, English, Hindi, Marathi, Gujarathi and Bengali.
However, she has not acted in a Malayalam film so far. She was to act in a film in Malayalam titled Chakram with Mohanlal, but the project did not take off. Her latest Hindi film Kismat Konnection with Shahid Kapoor is now in theatres and reported to be doing reasonably well.
Vidya Balan has been signed by ace director and producer Sanjay Leela Bhansali for a film titled Chenab Gandhi. She will share screen space with Amitabh Bachchan in the film, which is slated for release in 2009.
