An Indian Civilizational Perspective

Vidya Balan in never seen before role in 'Ishqiya'

Promos of “Ishqiya” have caught on in a big way and it is obvious by now that Vidya Balan would be seen in a never-seen-before role in it. The actor is thrilled about her role in the dark drama which is releasing Friday.

“When it comes to cinema, time and again women are seen and heard in a certain manner. Also, they are not necessarily shown to be their own self and are instead driven by people around her,” Vidya told IANS.

“However, in the case of ‘Ishqiya’, the portrayal of women is entirely different. That’s because Krishna (her character) is a woman who is ‘direct dil se’,” added Vidya.

What do you mean by ‘direct dil se’?

“Well, she is someone who will do what she wants. In fact, the most thrilling part for me was that I was playing a bad woman for the first time. This doesn’t mean though that she doesn’t have good shades at all. She has both sides to her persona and this is why she is an epitome of grey,” she said.
