Vidya Balan to star in an epic movie

Vidya Balan

After her pathbreaking performance in The Dirty Picture, Vidya Balan’s fame has reached epic proportions, literally.

The actor has reportedly been roped in to play the female lead in the movie adaptation of author Amish Tripathi’s best- seller The Immortals of Meluha.

The movie rights of the film were bought by Karan Johar as soon as the book became a rage. Rumours have been rife since then, associating almost every actor in the industry with the movie, should it go on floors at all.

While the front- runner for the lead role of Lord Shiva has been Hrithik Roshan all along, it’s the spot for the female lead that has been in contention.

It was earlier reported that Priyanka Chopra had been chosen to play the role but they lost steam after Karan publicly criticised her over her rumoured affair with Shah Rukh Khan. And now we hear Vidya has been finalised for the role.

Though we are not hinting that PC’s alleged closeness with SRK cost her the role, we do agree that it’s Vidya who is easier to visualise as Sati. And the latter being a far better performer would only help.
