“I love it when I am busy, but I need time between business. I need time for myself. I need down time because I get so intensely involved in what I do, specially a film shoot… Then I need time to get back to being just Vidya after a promotional schedule also. I love it, I thrive on it,” Vidya told IANS.


“But to retain my sanity, I need to do things that are completely unrelated to work and then come back to working with full force,” Vidya added.

The 37-year-old actress, who was recently seen in “Kahaani 2: Durga Rani Singh” helmed by Sujoy Ghosh, is for now gearing up for her myriad roles on screen. In “Tumhari Sulu”, Vidya will be seen playing a radio jockey (RJ) named Sulochana, fondly known as Sulu.

“Begum Jaan”, a Hindi adaptation of Srijit Mukherji’s stellar Bengali offering Rajkahini, will feature Vidya as a brothel’s madam in Punjab during India’s partition in 1947. Though actress Rituparna Sengupta essayed the lead role in the Bengali version, Mukherji’s first choice for the adaptation was Vidya.
